BTW, Microsoft has done a good job of making sure you can use XML
without XML Schema, XML Schema without WSDL and WSDL without SOAP. Good
work! Others have been lazier and have made WSDL support part of a "SOAP
toolkit" which means you can only use WSDL with SOAP. And they've
implemented XML Schema only as a means of supporting WSDL, so you can
only use XML Schema with WSDL. Not only does this make certain service
configurations impossible, it confuses the hell out of the market. For
example, people think WSDL is part of SOAP.
