I'm saying it's not a niche. However, it looks like I misread the
original post, which says it IS irrelevant to a 'large niche'. I'd agree
that XML Schema may be irrelevant to a 'niche' (whether big or small is
debatable) of developers but those developers aren't building Web

All I'm suggesting is that those working groups could have chosen not to
build on XML Schema if they really believed it was severely flawed and
there were better alternatives. I'm not saying that the W3C process nor
XML Schema are perfect, but it makes sense for the Web services
community to focus on XML Schema if we care about interoperable services
any time soon.
