Bootstrapping is a special case. Schema processors are not required to
the formal schema for schemas: its purpose is in part to express the
of the type-system using the same notation as actual schemas use.
But it is possible to derive a usable schema for schemas by editing the
schema for schemas. That is what Topologi products use, for example.
