RE: RELAX NG Marketing (was RE: Do Names Matter?)
I need an type-augmented infoset. I'd like to obtain schema information in an abstract grammar format, independent of the schema language used. An important thing would be the ability to obtain the name of the type associated to any given element (this name could be precised in a RELAX NG annotation). This way I could use a validator to disambiguate the type of each XML element and use this type name to process XML data in an extensible way. So OK, relying on XSD PSVI is bad, but typing info as part of the PSVI is good.
