Is there a common tendency among people involved with the W3C to feel that
all activity should if possible take place on W3C mailing lists?
I received several similar messages when I set up XHTML-L when www-html
already existed. Several of them were downright hostile.
I don't know whether XSDSchema will make it, but I tend to find the
conversation on non-W3C mailing lists to have a really different tone than
that on W3C mailing lists. It's a kind of diversity I'd rather see
supported than scorned.
