         I have to confess that I tend to agree with much of what Simon 
says in his article. Tying future XML specs to XML Schema, given the 
controversy around it in the developer community, seems like a recipe for 

         However, tying it to something like the Infoset, and through that, 
the sort of things you might see in XML Schema, or TREX, or RELAX, might 
make sense. That way, the implementation is tied to no specific syntax, 
while maintaining the features that schemas offer.
