Re: architectural forms and schema type derivation

I think schema derivation was intended to work in a similar area to AF.

On the other hand, the fact that AF never took off may be some kind of evidence
that working in abstractions beyond the markup is only a minority need (at least
as far as publishing is concerned).  Also, AF processing is a kind of transformation 
on the document, where you can rename, strip and perhaps flatten elements: this 
is different from providing a type lattice.
