Two points, both factual: 1) Many of the people publically worried about W3C XML Schema size and complexity on this list and elsewhere six months ago are now happily (by their own accounts) writing schemas and using them. Accordingly, I contest the 'deeply unpopular (in many quarters)' assertion as not only misleading but unfounded. You need to get out more, Simon, and notice just how much use XML Schema is getting -- you'd be impressed. 2) None of the competition, for all their many admirable quarters, address the type assignment issue at all. All the other W3C spec's at issue _require_ type assignment. There is no political plot, only design necessity following from requirements. ht -- Henry S.
