RE: TREX and RELAX unite?

This comment needs clarification:

"The main problem I have with it is it's too complicated," said James Clark,
an XML expert in Bangkok, Thailand, who launched his own schema effort,
called Trex, in December. "It's fine if you're a huge company like Microsoft
[Corp.] or IBM. They can just add more developers." 

Is Clark comparing the developers of schema support tools (eg, schema
engines) or 
authors of schemas?   Presuming the former, from the perspective of tool
is this as interesting an issue as the possibility of having several
alternatives?  Intertransformability will be the issue.  It's ugly but it is

a way to enable choice among technical means.
