Yes, I think so. Using the PSVI (at least with the current
underspecification of its API and|or serialization) implies defining a
W3C XML Schema for all your documents and some applications may want or
need to use other schema languages or no schema at all.

Except for DBMS which *requires* a schema definition for their physical
storage, this requirement to write a formal definition of the data
structures outside the applications is quite unique IMO and I am not
even sure that this approach can be successfull or even if it is
something that we should wish.
