Ah, well lots of us are quite happy with things that are simpler
than W3C's schemas, but we don't need to start that again!
I must say I'm perplexed by folk who are happy using proprietary
libraries (binary), but won't use "GPL-with-library-exception".
GPL has fewer restrictions: never a viral NDA to worry about,
never any contamination of your apps just from using the library.
So far as I know, no vendor other than Microsoft has found any
problem using, for example, the GNU C library with proprietary
closed-source applications. Every vendor shipping apps on
Linux does exactly that. IBM and Oracle are just some of the
better known names; neither has gives away their core IP when
they link against GNU Libc.
