I think the acid tests for features of RELAX NG have been soundness and
fitness, which also includes implementability. In my opinion, I think there
is little danger of RELAX NG getting ahead of itself, and I don't see this
as a frailty. To me, RELAX NG takes sort of a Winston Churchill approach
rather than a Neville Chamberlain approach, that is, dogged determination to
do the right thing, even against great odds, instead of hurried attempts at
"peace for our time" or appeasement. (I do not use Mr. Chamberlain as an
allusion to XML Schema but to the practice of "marketing at all costs,"
whatever the setting.)
