RE: WXS acronym?
Guess it reflects which document I found easier to use :-) True,  uses xs:, but slips slightly when discussing redefinition in terms of v1.xsd and v2.xsd. As for , xsd: shows up in the examples even if the schema uses xs:. I wasn't arguing that xsd was the only abbreviation, rather I was trying to add weight to Don's argument - XSD is being used for file extensions (even by the structures spec ) and is used in the document most people start with when learning W3C XML Schema - the primer. Once the pattern is establshed, its hard to break.
