A GUI vs. text, as with any different-level-of-abstraction level
symbolic systems, is a tradeoff between ease and control. RELAX NG
doesn't have enough complexity to make giving up control worth the
marginal added ease for many people (no more than a speculation,
again). I'm sure someone somewhere wrote a GUI to edit /etc/fstab, but
I don't see a wide acceptance.

Again, I think people who do "WS the VS way" are not the kind of
people who appreciate an elegant tool for a more civilized age.
