there are some very strange paths there:-)

If you were starting to learn xslt2 or xquery today why would you follow 
your suggested path and learn xpath1 first (and so just confuse yourself 
over the differences) rather than just learn xpath2 first?

Since ATOM was intended as a cleaned up replacement for RSS why say 
learn RSS before ATOM. As with xpath1->2 historically RSS came first but 
if the intention is to learn ATOM, learning RSS first doesn't really 
help. Of course it's perfectly reasonable to want to do both, but then 
why not show them as siblings in the tree rather than rss then atom?

schematron has no dependency on XSD so why have that after there?
It does have a dependency on xpath.
