Perhaps it will, but I'm not sure WSDL will be used everywhere, as least not
soon enough for me.  More importantly, trusting that you know which version(s)
of the schema(s) apply to an instance document that you receive would be
dangerous in certain commercial/financial situations (though there will be other
situations where it can be safely assumed).  I'm looking for something that
doesn't require knowledge in advance, so that validation can be done without
requiring context information that is not contained within the instance
