Or do the smart thing and use XDR.  It is a decent 
subset, will be compatible, and is fully supported 
in working code.

The choice to carve out the controversial features 
and use the working subset is what a smart manager 
and developer chooses for products to be fielded 
on short deadlines with acceptance tests.  

This is engineering, not social work.  Formal 
language theory may not have been the best pursuit 
if simplicity of exposition was key.  I like the 
potential of schemas as presented, but like other specs, 
it may be a little bit ahead of its high time.

A development manager who says "I promised it with the specified features
and within budget by the end of the second quarter, so it will ship on June
30th or heads will roll" is essentially saying "it's OK to have flaws".
He/she may deny it, but we all know that that's the reality.
