RE: [xml-dev] Victory has been declared in the schema wars ...

And while I respect Kimber's opinion, I note that many of his points are
being quickly refuted by his commenters.

That said, I still think this is not a war.  It is a bit of gerrymandering
for the next election.   We're all getting pretty good at that.

FWIS, the advantage of RELAX is that it is easier to learn and apply to most
cases.  Kimber makes some points about classing, but there is a bit of
Hytime brain damage there in that object-oriented systems do that better and
one is better off specifying a separate object model in a language more
suitable for it given the need to associate behaviors.

I'd really hate having to do what we do in real-time 3D worlds using only a
data document model.  In fact, we have and it was a mess.

Elliot Kimber, a member of the original XML working group, has a very long 
piece on why he thinks XSD is a better tool than RNG; it's in his blog at 
: "I find I am underwhelmed"

For what it's worth, Tim Bray holds Kimber in *very* high regard
