The ones that come to your door when your house is on fire or you have
been robbed do. They may not be important until you need them but you
want them to work reliably when you do. Local intelligence. So if you
think XSD is a bad choice, you may want to spend some time at your next
city council meeting and before your local/federal governments or
whatever form is used in your world-burg because the uptake of XSD there
is enormous. See NIEM.
BTW: there are still plenty of applications being written that aren't
web applications. They are off the web so one could say, who cares.
But that would be a foolish thing to say. Some of them are becoming web
applications or at least use services, but as long as DNS cannot be
prevented, they won't be on the web. They will ask for services via
proxies. The banking institutions have been rather stupid in this
regard and the result has been the most massive identity thefts of all
time. Then there are the social ills amplified by witless web
applications such as mySpace leading to misguided but virtuous attempts
to regulate them.
Yes, a merry thing.
