A customer was quick to call:
"You see, the spec's not clear at all,
 	you think it says 'X'
	but our process you vex
Reinterpret, you morons, or fall!"

Now with schemas you see, there's no problem
You validate with or without them,
	But the latter, you see
	is nat-ur-'ly
The best way to go when you got 'em.
