I don't care so much because I don't use schemas. I don't believe
in W3C XML Schema, too rigid. I rather invest my time in doing
XSLT that actually makes something happen then in writing schemas.
Also, there's still just about no Schema processor that really
gets it right. And what a huge waste of time if you really are
interested in processing. I understand that it can be useful or
necessary to validate against some schema, but I think the whole
utility of DTD and Schema for everyday business has long been
very much overstated. ... just a soapbox issue of mine.

Right. I suppose one of the ugly workarounds we will see in the future
will involve a dom (or other type of processable xml) to be processed
through a schema, and a dom to be processed through an xslt, even though
both doms are in fact loading the same xml.

Does this seem like a good guess?
