Even more surprising and unfortunate is that neither XMLSpy nor Stylus
are available other than on the Windows platform. <oxygen/> is the
only schema editor (and then no visualization functionality) available
cross-platform. I'm also surprised that no one's written schema
diagramming software for GraphViz or similar.
Have you thought about getting the schemas into some sort of central,
version-controlled repository with some kind of continuous "build" and
a christmas tree? I bet that XMLSpy supports WebDAV(?), so you could
probably use subversion. It certainly sounds like you're doing enough
heavy lifting to make some additional infrastructure worthwhile.
