The problem with that wordview is that Xpath/Xquery are clearly mostly going to be used at application run-time. I think the proportion of cases where XMLSchema validation happens at application run-time is going to be way short of 100%. I personally think's actually going to be way short of 25%, it's useful for design support and debugging but it's just not at the right level for business-logic validation. The basic notion getting wired into XQuery and friends that you've basically always run it through a schema is theoretically interesting but WRONG. > I think that XQuery has been really held back from really addressing > the community of schema users by the requirement to be simple I see no evidence in XQuery in any evidence whatsoever in simplicity. , and > that XSLT 2.0 has been vastly complicated by the requirement to supply > schema information.
