Re: Personal reply to Edd Dumbill's XML Hack Article wrt W3C XML Schema

The natural way for W3C specs to couple to XML Schema will be by
describing their input in terms of the PSV Infoset.  Any other
validator whose output could be described in terms of the PSV Infoset
could then equally well be used.

The PSV Infoset as it stands is probably rather too closely tied to
XML Schemas for this to appeal to those defining other validators (or
rather type-assigners).  In particular the complex types and their
representations are (of course) those of XML Schemas.

Are the simple types sufficiently uncontroversial to form a basis for
a common "typed infoset"?
