I guess one of the reasons for sticking to the extension ".xsd" is 
becuase it has three letters which still seems to hang around in the 
Windows world.
As for using "xsd" or "xs" as a prefix I don't care much one way or the 
other but I think it would be nice if the W3C would stick to one and use 
that through out. Unless they're trying to make a point that the prefix 
doesn't matter but I don't think that's the case.
