-1 from a corner of the US Defense Industry where I'm obliged to use XSD
for US intelligence documents using the IC-MSP schemas
https://www.icmwg.org/ic_pub/introduction.asp ... this is becoming a very
large use of XSD for documents as the project I'm on deploys an
editing/publishing environment across a number of geographically-dispersed
organizations. I've proposed a case study paper at XML'2005 where I'll
talk about this deployment and accommodating the document-oriented XSD with
stylesheets in different organizations.
I would much rather be using RELAX-NG but the use of these schemas is
imposed on the project. The community is living without co-occurrence
constraints, rather than living without XSD.
I don't really have anything to contribute to the W3C because my complaints
beyond lack of co-occurrence constraints are along the lines of "too
difficult to use" and "too difficult to understand" and "too difficult to
teach to colleagues". No metrics there to contribute to improvements.
