Just a curiosity question - are there any developers who are not members of the W3C actually implementing (not just using) XML Schema? The membership list at: http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Member/List currently returns MySQL errors, so it's hard to judge independently. I can't say that I'm shocked that Microsoft, IBM, and Oracle would have the resources to implement the spec using different people than those who served on the WG, but somehow I'd doubt those developers built "clean room" implementations.
