There is a faith out there that schemas are the right way to bootstrap 
from the world of dynamically typed XML to the world of statically typed 
C# and Java. It is thought that this will enhance, rather than degrade 
performance by pushing type conversion from application logic down into 
infrastructure. I don't personally believe this myself but I think that 
you need to understand it to understand the schema mindset.
