You asked for a professional product free of the problems
of the kind XML Schema has created. I recommend professionals.
If the myths you live by don't fit that recommendation, ignore it.
I think you don't know how to pick professionals for a job. There
are more failures from the self-constituted groups of amateur
standards writers than there are successes. You are going to
quote back to me the few notable successes from the amateurs
but they are fewer than their counterparts. Don't confuse
myth for math.
Myths are there to inform, but they rarely compute. It is
the customer that has to pick the brand; it is the salesman
that brands. As a result, once any constituted group has
completed it's work, it has little to no say about what a
thing is called or how it is applied.

It sometimes creates successes and it sometimes creates failures, but it
rarely creates standards.
In fact, standards committees that are stuffed with paid consultants are the
least successful, in my experience.
