Isn't there value in the ISO imprimatur for ISO/IEC 19757-2 RELAX-NG and
ISO/IEC 19757-3 Schematron?
Do vendors feel these standards are not worthy?
I ask because I have the impression that users follow the lead of tool
vendors more often than learning the technologies well enough to roll their
own ... so the "acceptance" of a technology is often related to how many
vendors support it.
So what is holding vendors back from ISO-developed standards?
I won't accept "overlap" as an answer because W3C Schema describes
type-based constraints, RELAX-NG describes pattern-based constraints, and
Schematron describes assertion-based constraints.
