Regarding the question of discrepancies between schema and
DTD, I think the right thing to do is to select one to be
normative, and state that other forms are non-normative.

That's what the DocBook committee did. RelaxNG defines the
normative standard, and other representations (W3C Schema,
and DTD) are provided for convenience, but are non-normative.
