This touches on another big difference (as I understand it)
between "real" international standards and what the W3C does.
If BigBozoCo claims to implement an ISO standard (ISO 9000,
maybe), and it turns out that they are just kinda sorta
working within the "spirit" of ISO 9000 but don't ACTUALLY
have people waste their valuable time filling out those
boring documents, someone (ISO? a government? a disgruntled
customer?) is likely to take legal action against them. But
if BigBozoCo's claims to implement the W3C XML Schema spec, and
it turns out that they didn't actually have the developers waste their
valuable time implementing all those boring
types or content models, nobody can do anything except whine about it.
Is this not true?
