Subject: Re: [ubl-ndrsc] Rule: 96 Two Schema

I am *completely* opposed to the suggestion that users can filter annotations
out of their Schemas if required.  My experience is that only the < 1% of
people who take part in XML committees have the confidence and experience for
that.  Worse, it just introduces an unnecessary, globally-distributed quality
control issue.  If it is so easy to filter out the documentation, then let us
do it just once ourselves for everyone on the planet, and issue two equivalent
normative Schemas, full-fat and low-fat.  I'm happy to contribute an XSLT
script or Java class to do the job, if it is too hard to do from the Schema
generation tools.
