I have this mental image of XML Schema being a helicopter.  The aviators
definition of a helicopter is 100,000 parts moving together in very 
close formation.   Schema certainly requires that level of maintenance
and trained technicians to support it.   And the tactical business use is
similarly limited to descrete mission envelopes.

Also - I think without XMLSpy stepping up and actually making 
Schema useable to a point - then Schema would be a very much
worse shape today.  XMLSpy literally made Schema happen
single handed.

But that's all history - we now need to focus on how we get RELAX
