I'll post this tonight, and maybe we'll have some replies by morning.

We can implement XSchema through RDF, if we choose.  Question #1 (it was going 
to be #2, but all right) will be XSchema's relationship to RDF.  For the 
goals, I'm going to change #11 from

11. The XSD specification will comply with and be consistent with W3C 
recommendations regarding XML.

to:

11. The XSD specification will comply with and be consistent with W3C 
recommendations.

W3C recommendations (or proposed recommendations we should comply with and be 
consistent with) _include RDF_.  I don't feel comfortable _at this point_ 
committing the entire project to an RDF application, having spent a week 
digesting the draft RDF proposal.  I would like to nail down the goals so we 
can move on to more specific questions, including RDF, and I think this will 
let us do that.

At this point, I'm also planning to change the name from XSD to XSchema.
