On the contrary, it's an unalloyed good thing. We have moved from a
situation in which nobody in the world had ever heard of any schema
facility other than XSD to a situation in which we are having widespread
and quite enlightening discussions about pros and cons and trade-offs
and options. This is a major win.
And yes, it needed a fairly large-caliber cannon blast to alert the
world that there are some issues here. Sometimes you have to dump tea
