It is very close to final.  I have one last round of corrections to make, 
hopefully tomorrow, and section 2 - the 'key' section for most development - 
will be complete.  The glossary in section 1, some namespace issues in section 
3, and the big pictures of sections 4 and 5 will still need work, but the 
foundation will be poured for XSchema 1.0.

We do need an evaluation period once these drafts are posted; people are still 
finding nits.  A week sounds like a good idea to me, but what do other people 

There have been good ideas about inheritance and other potentially exciting 
stuff coming in.  I'd like to hammer out 1.0, but be ready for 1.1 and 2.0! 
(If the W3C doesn't scoop this up before we get there, of course.)
