I may not work on the XML team anymore but I don't think I'd be inaccurate if I said "Don't hold your breathe".

Hm, what do you mean by implementors? Only a couple were actually schema
implementors, and a bunch more were implementing "XML," but I don't think
it was more than half.
My feeling (and travel made me miss the first day) was that XSD is
something that can be lived with. The fact that so many people know there
are alternatives is, by itself, very significant.
I think there's a good chance that MSFT will support Relax with the XSD
type system, perhaps in 12-24 months.
