My opinion on unified schema repository is that it won't happen while
everyone is interested in it because expectation leads to escalating hype
and politics.  We already have multiple schema repositories now and there
will be more of them coming in the near future.

I have more hope for unified schema bridge registry which provides schema
conversion service either in downloadable or remote form.  Your software can
use the service at runtime to convert one XML format to another without
regard to schemas differences.  Some bridges will be generated automatically
but I do not see hand-built bridges going away ever.

The Unified Schema Bridge Registry will flatten the playing field and let
the market pick the best schemas.
