Having said all that, I just realized a serious drawback to using "strict".
Because XLIFF is used as an interchange format (the 'I' in XLIFF), the file
is processed multiple times by various applications and vendors. Using
"strict" would require ALL the vendors to HAVE ALL the proprietary schemas
used within the XLIFF document. Obviously, this is not practical. So I guess
"strict" is not an option.

I believe that "strict" is the right option for the Strict schema.

Adding proprietary extensions to XLIFF is against the notion of easy interchange. Vendors that use custom namespaces in their XLIFF files are responsible for making their Schemas available.

If a vendor wants to use a custom namespace but doesn't want to publish its proprietary schema, then that vendor should use the "Transitional" Schema, not the Strict one.

That leaves us with "lax" and "skip". The .NET parser (and sometimes XSV)
treats "lax" as "strict". So I guess I'm back to (reluctantly) preferring

As said above, "strict" is still the right option for the Strict Schema.
