We _can_ build on them - but I have concerns that the (significantly larger and more complex) schema processing is going to get lumped in with the current XML 1.0 mechanism and give us bloated parsers that are difficult to control. I'd love to see the schema spec people describe in some fairly scandalous detail how exactly schemas should interact with XML 1.0 documents - and make sure that all schema-compliant docs are 1.0-compliant. I've made some proposals in my Layered Model article (http://www.simonstl.com/articles/layering/layered.htm) and XML Processing Description Language (XPDL - http://purl.oclc.org/NET/xpdl ). I'd like to see the schema WG and supporting groups make the connections between the various layers. >And if a particular application does not need the extended schema >information then it can work directly with the SAX 1 or DOM level 1.

As noted above, however, we need to make sure that the layering of those tools is well understood and that layers do not interfere with each other. I don't think we're nearly there yet.
