I'm a little disturbed to see the level of personalization that seems to be 
growing in this issue, which I guess puts me in some level of agreement 
with Len.

W3C XML Schema vs. RELAX NG

         is not

Henry Thompson vs. James Clark

         or even

Henry Thompson + Large Committee
              vs. James Clark, Murata Makoto, and a Smaller Committee

The message James Clark posted to ietf-xml-use was (IMHO) a technical tour 
de force.  I don't think James reached every weakness of W3C XML Schema, 
nor am I sure that would be productive because of the length.  I'm glad to 
hear that the message is being widely distributed and read, but I certainly 
hope that readers get past the headers and read the content.
