Yes, yes, yes, and I didn't mean to. ;-)

Sorry if what I said came across as if I'm trashing the work of the schema
folks. I did not intend it in that sense. I just have a very blunt way of
saying things, sometimes. I'm used to very spirited and critical exchanges
on design issues. (You should see the design reviews we have here at work.
I've joked to coworkers that I should bring boxing gloves to these.)

I'll try to choose my words more carefully next time.
