I concur. The company I work with does binary XML encoding based on XML 
Schema. There is no reason for us to be restricted to XML Schema and 
we'd be quite happy offering the same service for any schema language, 
however given the current situation it's not worth putting in the effort 
to support something else. DOM AS could have helped sufficiently that 
we'd be offering the same service for any schema language it supported 
more easily (based on what I remember from reading the draft a while ago).

I agree that it's a marginal use case (there can only be so many 
companies providing binary XML solutions), but it's non-null.
