RE: XML Schema Test Collection open for contributions

The people who implemented the spec from Microsoft, IBM, and Oracle were not
the people on the WG. They were developers who used the spec to implement
and provided feedback on their experiences. Also, XML Spy was well along
with Schema support before Altova joined the WG. And the developers at
Apache were using the spec. There are no secret documents privy to the WG
that contains the silver bullet of implementing Schema.

SHOULDN'T there be some stage between "We've demonstrated that people on the
WG can implement the spec" and "We've seen that independent developers can
implement the spec solely from the information it contains, and those
independently developed versions are interoperable".  Maybe the latter is
the job of ISO to define as an International Standard?  I don't know.
