If we do xml-dev announcement, maybe it'd also help to include some
specific language like:

  If you're an author or editor currently working on an XML-related book
  or article, especially if it includes discussion XML schema languages,
  contact the TREX technical committee <trex-comment@lists.oasis-open.org>
  for up-to-date information and clarification of

    * details on the TREX/RELAX unification
    * the relationship of the unified TREX/RELAX XML schema language
      to the W3C XML schema offering

    * plans for making the unified TREX/RELAX XML schema language an
      international standard

    * existing and planned tools/implementations

And I guess we ought to be pestering anybody we know personally who's
got an XML-related book in the works to try to include a reference to
TREX/RELAX (RELAX NG, if that's what's been decided)-- if it's
appropriate for the particular book, of course.
