Kilian Stillhard and Erik Wilde designed and implemented just such a
syntax early in 2003; see http://dret.net/projects/xscs/ .  I could

The conversion software is freely redistributable but not Open Source.
To get a taste, the Schema for Schemas is online at
http://dret.net/projects/xscs/XMLSchema.xsc .
