Well, your reasons are understandable but XSD and SDD confuses me still.
One of the things I did not like about DTD is that it is a document format
different from XML documents.  Seperating XSD and SDD fuels that confusion.
However, my intent was to provide a comment in the spirit of communal
dicussion.  I have no hard stance nor commercial interest to protect so
please move on if it makes no sense.

XML documents are easy to parse, manipulate, etc.  I believe goal #4 and
some of the others state these as goals.

I just think it should be made clear whether XSD functional superset,
equivalent or complement of DTD.
