Industry support aside, after 17 serious projects, with budgets ranging
from £15k to £785k, using XML technologies.... I have not used XML
Schema once commercially; perhaps I have auto generated some code from
external xml schemas, or converted an XML schema to RELAXNG, but that
was it.

....perhaps this is because I am always creating a certain type of
project....I just personally think XML schema never stuck, yes it has
inertia, yes every time I start architecting a new project I have every
intent to use it if I must....
