Certainly don't assess 1.0 based on vaporspecs.

My guess is
 - all XML Schemas 1.0 schemas must work with XML Schemas 1.1
 - XML Schemas 1.1 would address some of the issues that have been put into
the too-hard basket: dates/times, numbers, internationalization, better
key/uniqueness, subsetting/modularization; and also of course ambiguities in
the text of the specs.
 - XML Schemas 1.1 might reflect some more feedback from the MSL
formalization, XML forms, and XML queries
 - in any case, the more clearly that improvements to 1.0 are identified,
the better 1.1 will be.

I think
