Possibly aside the point, but I personally find it rather annoying that just about all the examples 
I've seen of XSD syntax use fully-prefixed elements names, despite the fact that none of the elements  
are outside the XSD namespace.  I guess it reminds me too much of MS-Hungarian notation, which I also 
personall find unreadable.
