RE: [xml-dev] NVDL: A Disruptive Technology

Hold the phone here ... NVDL is not just for the 
situation where one finds the semantics available 
in one schema language preferable over that of 
the other and they feel obliged to use both.

Rather than writing an über-schema covering all 
of the possibilities found in a single instance 
one can use NVDL to choreograph the dispatching 
of portions of one's document to different 
schemas using the same schema language for each vocabulary.

I wouldn't want NVDL judged only on its merits of 
allowing multiple different languages to be used 
at the same time.  Then it becomes a "mine is 
better than yours" argument on the languages 
ignoring what I think is the prime motivation for 
NVDL:  dispatching ... hence the name!

I hope this helps.
