Well, personally, I'd prefer if XML Schemas was split into 

* an infoset annotation language which traverses down the DOM and
adds architectural attributes (e.g. xsi:type attributes) and
default values like a mini-XSLT and which looks after all
and infoset issues, and

* a RELAX-sized, non-infoset-contributing schema validation language,

* non-infoset-contributing Schematron, which could then validate using
the xsi:type 
etc attributes.)

I think a mini-XSL (which would just add attributes) would be pretty
and lite-weight.  I hope XML-DEV people can look at some of the XML
drafts now out at W3C: of course it is probably more useful to find
errors and gaps rather than commenting on the feature set or the
still the proof of the pudding for XML schemas will be taking it on the
for serious testing (oops, mixed metaphor) and not armchair analysis.
