In my opinion, the best solution would be to remove the confusing
http:// from the namespace name. However, at least you should
append /xml-schema when translating a namespace name into an 
XML Schema URL. Otherwise, an XML Schema can collide with e.g. 
an RDF schema describing the same language.

I think most of us just need some nice DTD replacement 
including packaging. Why don't you try a layered approach 
and build more advanced features later on top of something 
more simple?
