The writing is not necessarily the main problem.  It may just obscure
an underlying substantial problem: mind-boggling technical complexity 
that can't be explained away.  I'm just guessing here, since
I've not quite been able to penetrate the language barrier yet.
And the promise of a more readable version makes me think
I'm just wasting my time trying to digest the current one.
(Reading SOX 2.0 is a good start, though. I believe
it explains the underlying philosophy of XML Schema 
well. Correct me if I'm wrong.)

Well, I'd say math is already out there, plain or maybe as formulated 
in formal methods.
