I'll post this tonight, and maybe we'll have some replies by morning.

We can implement XSchema through RDF, if we choose.  Question #1 (it was going 
to be #2, but all right) will be XSchema's relationship to RDF.  For the 
goals, I'm going to change #11 from

11. The XSD specification will comply with and be consistent with W3C 
recommendations regarding XML.


11. The XSD specification will comply with and be consistent with W3C 

W3C recommendations (or proposed recommendations we should comply with and be 
consistent with) _include RDF_.  I don't feel comfortable _at this point_ 
committing the entire project to an RDF application, having spent a week 
digesting the draft RDF proposal.  I would like to nail down the goals so we 
can move on to more specific questions, including RDF, and I think this will 
let us do that.

At this point, I'm also planning to change the name from XSD to XSchema.
