We call it WXS to make it clear that this is just the W3C's proposed XML schema language.  I used to call it XSDL as well, but I was convinced that this makes it sound too much as if it's the only schema language out there.

I guess this is perhaps a tad unfar: we say "XSLT" without a flinch.  I expect this has to do with relative attitudes towards XSLT and WXS.
