As glad as I am to see the Schema folks wrestling with these issues, it
seems like they belong someplace else - with the instance->stylesheet
problem, perhaps.

Has anything ever come of the 'plans for a Working Group on XML Packaging'
mentioned in the XML Activity Statement

people/companies to get excited about?

These issues are pretty much at the core of XML processing, and not just
schema processing...
