There has been good work on the theoretical classification of schema 
languages over
the last two or three years.

My impression is that as soon as your schema language supports IDREF it 
is stuffed,
from an NP POV:  Schematron, XSD, RELAX NG, DTDs, the lot!

Theoretical classification is important for know what the 
characteristics of things
are, and what pathological problems implementations may have to deal with.
But people who reject one language or another on theoretical grounds alone,
without considering their pragmatic value, need to have an alternative 
they are troll-like.
