Dan Brickley just wrote, regarding RDF:
The only other potential stumbling block is namespace prefixing:
RDF uses namespaces, so an RDF-friendly syntax would hopefully do
likewise. So a concrete question to ask might be: do we agree that it's
acceptable to spend those extra bytes namespace-prefixing the elements and
attributes in an XSchema document?

Paul Prescod wrote earlier:
I feel that XSchema should have its own namespace, that its DTD should
embed a namespace qualifier in element type names and that when and if it
has an "import" mechanism other than general entities, that mechanism
should support automatic namespace remapping (e.g. your foo:bar could be
called baz:bar in my document).

I propose XSC for the namespace prefix, unless someone knows of a conflict or 
thinks three letters is too many. 

We also need a URI for the declaration. 'members.aol.com', the current site 
for the XSchema info, is probably not appropriate.  I also have simonstl.com, 
and three ISBNs, but I don't think we should tie this to my identifiers.
