What fun: I have never heard anyone say XML Schemas pays too much attention
to validation (compared to issues related to configuring DBMS and middleware!) 
Indeed, one of the points with DSDL, RELAX, Schematron etc is that WXS does not 
meet the mark for document validation, by providing to few bangs for too many bucks.  

Dare, what is the brokeness of WXS as you see it, especially that broken lens?
