Hooray, Rick!

Sober question, though: Does this mean that it's too late for discussion
of fixes and refinements?  IIRC not all the issues I and others had
raised on the schematron mailing list were addressed in the ISO draft. 
I guess I ask about its being too late because I'm not sure all
outstanding issues can be addressed in such a short time-frame, so I
don't know whether it's a sorts of ceremonial period before coronation.

And speaking of mailing lists, any chance of reviving the Schematron
mailing list?  I'm happy to host it for you, if that helps (same way we
host the EXSLT mailing list).
