I've been thinking about this for a while, trying to come up with a WXS 
Document Validation Profile. The problem is that, ideally, a schema 
that's valid for WXS DVP would still be valid and behave the same in WXS 
Leviathan. And while elementFormDefault is quite obviously the worst 
design decision ever made in a W3C specification, I don't think that 
adding a profiled subset that isn't interoperable with the complete 
beast is going to help us survive WXS more easily :)

Oh for the chance to start it all over again...
