I guess my real question is that if so many people thinks highly of
other schema languages, why don't I see tools supporting them?

I can understand that large vendors like Microsoft want to stick to one
language because they want to have a coherent story to tell to their
customers or because they have many non-technical reasons when it comes
to choose a technology.

but I thought there are other kinds of people, who can make decisions
mostly based on a technical reason. One of such people I think is those
who involves in open-source projects (like JaxMe) or those who are
making free software (like libxml).

He he, so you consider that W3C XML Schema is for a niche?   That's, uh,
encouraging  :-)
