   RE: [xml-dev] Fallacies of Validation, version #2

Re the dynamics aspect of schema creation:

While it is fun to discuss AI or other scripting 
programs creating schemas by looking at lots of 
samples, in my experience, this gets done by 
the dudes and dudettes sitting at ends of email 
or telephone pipes exchanging spippets of 
understanding.  As Graham notes, most of it 
is hacking examples.  I think this is particularly 
true if their is a very large and very abstract 
standard schema with six or seven layers of 
complex declarations in the middle (think 
Justice Global XML or some of the more hideous 
paramerterized DTDs one finds left over from 

I've been watching a new to markup but experienced guy 
trying to negotiate a simple web service interface 
based on GJXDM and I am convinced that before 
it is all done, we'll end up carving that beast 
into something a lot more directly understandable 
and simpler.

Word to the wise in the Justice Department and 
in the OASIS working groups:
Simpler is better even if it means more to 
manage, particularly where urgency of 
implementation is high.
