It might be worth developing all what can make RELAX NG (more) 
interoperable with W3C XML Schema based applications (such as XForms, 
XPath2.0/XSLT2.0/XQuery, Dom Level 3, a possible future version of SAX 
dealing with schemas, ...). I know how much RELAX NG is different from 
WXS, but if WXS is becoming part of core XML as the W3C would like it to 
be, we need to be able to provide some kind of interoperability between 
those two schema languages.

One of the facets of this issue are APIs and there are a number of APIs 
around schema languages, such as:

1) PSVI: although RELAX NG doesn't provide a heavyweight PSVI, it can 
associate datatypes to elements and attributes and it could be useful to 
send this info (and maybe the non RELAX NG elements which can be 
embedded in RELAX NG schemas) to applications.

2) Guided edition: if DOM Level 3 AS isn't adequate, it could be useful 
to provide an alternative. It it can be adequate but requires 
modifications, it could be useful to send feedback.

3) Schema parsing (maybe around what MSV as implemented).

Just some thoughts.

See you in Seattle.
