This is very interesting - I wonder if we might be heading for another split
such as the one that saw XSL split into T and FO? The differences are
becoming more pronounced, and the term "schema language" is starting to lack
definition as a result.

Eric (or anyone else), how do you differentiate between rules and semantics?
