ISO DSDL was developed in part as a reaction against the
PSVI/Type-Annotation approach adopted by XML Schemas.
The problem with PSVI/Type-Annotation (as implemented) is that it is not
XML: it requires a different set of APIs (err, where are the standards?)
and indeed a whole different set of technology. (This is not to say that
type annotation or augmented DOMs etc are not useful and appropriate in
their place of course.)
So the ISO DSDL parts try to take an "XML-in/XML-out" approach. NVDL is
probably the main example of this.
