W3C Schemas can do this too. It isn't a specific advantage of the other languages. See http://www.ibiblio.org/xml/books/xmljava/chapters/ch02s05.html#N5583 for one example of something like this. 

What I haven't yet figured out how to do with W3C schemas, and am beginning to think may be impossible, is to say that the first paragraph inside a list has a different content model than the second paragraph inside a list.
