While we're still a ways away from having schemas that allow
document-type assembly from other schemas, the most important task for 
XHTML (other than saying that XHTML should be well-formed XML, which
is a bit of a truisim), is to establish an XHTML Namespace so that
processors can discover HTML markup in arbitrary XML documents.   We
don't need Namespace-aware schemas or anything else to do that.

All the best,
