Off -list someone from a  national government which is using Schematron 
queried this statement.

I should clarify that I mean I don't expect that ISO, OASIS, W3C will 
put out many Schematron schemas: in part because I think they will try 
to stretch the existing schema languages to their breaking points 
(sometimes less, sometimes more than we might expect) and fudge the rest 
in text.   But I do think organizations that actually have to use the 
schemas they define, notably governments, web service stakeholders and 
multi-department corporations, will find Schematron useful and relieving.
