You don't know my members!

I was looking for an official and standard position from the W3C that I 
could point to not something I was going to make up. If I could have said, 
see it is here is sect x.3 do this, then I could easily have them do that. 
If I'm making our own rule then I may have to fight harder to get that 
through. I like that fact that XForms has something might be able to point 
to and say "See someone else thought this was important enough they made a 
method of their own".

Also I was just sort of surprised at the position/direction taken here. As 
I indicated it was rather contrary to the old world I was used to and 
comfortable with.

I still think a XML Schema Catalog approach would be useful and more 
manageable that what is currently here. This catalog would identify:
         - a family name for a set of:
                 - DTDs
                 - W3C schema
                 - RleaxNG schema
                 - schematron etc
         - Each of these different schemas would then have a system 
location, potentially a series of these for each type.
