Rick, I do not know why you condemn XSD so much :) I feel, XSD doesn't
deserve so much condemnation.
If somebody doesn't like certain technologies for whatever reasons,
they should simply not use it, instead of saying words like "crap",
"poisonous" and so on.
There are individuals and organizations who have written
implementations for XSD, and I believe uncountable numbers of XML
instances get validated each day with XSD. Certainly, innumerable
number of people who are currently using XSD, do not lack good
judgement I believe :)

I don't agree that, a technology from W3C (viz XSD) which is heavily
deployed currently, and has a mandate from W3C to improve itself (i.e,
XSD ver 1.1) should be discouraged.
