Indeed. But I don't see MS doing anything about it.

If that's true, it's totally bogus. Complete and utter junk.

The version generated from the RELAX NG grammar is probably pretty
good. You shouldn't have any trouble. If you do, that's a bug
somewhere in the schema probably and I'd like to hear about it.
