"Deferred" is an excellent way to put it. It's not so much that no one
will ever want to apply a schema to the data or derive a schema from

even be formal decisions.
It's much the same as with requirements. Even if there are no formal requirements, they exist informally in the mind of the document writer/programmer/software engineer/... Especially when other people are involved, it may be useful to articulate them into a set of written requirements. But they are in there somewhere anyway.
