 I see in this an other threads that there is a misconception of
associating ASN.1 with XML schemas. This is only the case if we consider
the X.694 spec in which a mapping from XSD to ASN.1 is defined. 

 A completely different spec is X.finf (finf = Fast Infoset) in which a
schema for the XML infoset is being defined. This spec will allow
encoding arbitrary XML documents without the need of a schema. In the
future it may also be possible to use X.finf together with X.694 to
encode open content (e.g. xsd:any). 

 Thus, both Fast Schema (X.694) and Fast Infoset (X.finf) are supported
by ASN.1.
