I think this is critical. I've often thought that if I'd written the DTD
=> XSchema converter a year earlier than I did, XSchema would have
gained a reasonable market share (for no other reason than lack of
competition) and the schema landscape would be very different from what
it is today. (By the way, both directions are needed, not just RELAX NG
=> DTD, XSD.)
