XQuery and XSLT are widely used in the corporate "enterprise"

Since XQuery and XSLT use (optionally) XSD to supply a type hierarchy, I
don't see XSD going away.  Changing RNG to be able to recognise and
assign a user-defined hierarchy of types is possible in principle;
Makoto Murata said to me that the result would have to be a
deterministic subset of RNG.  It's not clear to me that the XSLT and
XQuery communities want this particularly today; part of that is because
there are not many implementations widely-available that do let people
program using the type hierarchy right now.  That seems to be changing.
