Questions have been raised episodically about the usability of W3C's
'XML Schema' formalism (http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/): does it
attempt too much?, is the spec hard to understand?, is the notation
excessively verbose?, etc.  Despite these doubts, the WD specification
seems to make sense to a growing number of developers.  I note
(anecdotically) that W3C XML Schema (.xsd) is used as the principal
meta-level specification in two important projects, announced

"DIG35: Metadata Standard for Digital Images"

"Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI)"

These are not lightweight or trivial XML applications.

Cheers, all.
