I doubt it. XML newbies will take XML Schemas
for granted, and it will be useful to them, just like DTDs.
I don't see anyone on this list spewing on about
the beautifulness of DTDs yet they are used
substantially more than any other XML-based
schema, because all real parsers and other
tools support DTDs.
A standard schema language in XML that
has wide-spread parser and tools support *is*
exciting, even if it isn't everyone's favorite flavor.

XML 1.0 wasn't all about jettisoning features, and it took off like a
rocket. XML Schemas seems to be all about piling on features, and I fear
it will weigh that rocket down so badly that people forget XML 1.0 was
exciting in the first place.
