Okay, I guess that's clear enough: XML-Schema will stand as is. Only time
will tell, with the first test being   whether or not tool vendors can
swallow the whole hog. I don't expect many people will be directly writing
(or reading) schemas in the near future, so maybe the complexity won't
matter much in the end. I still remain concerned about the schema design
being conceptually difficult, something even a good tool will have a hard
time masking.

But what's done it done. Hmmm... I wonder if the SML-dev group is working on
a schema?

This is xml-dev, the mailing list for XML developers.
