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.
