The talks were dominated by tools vendors and implementers. They almost universally dislike schema since they've dealt with its unnecessary complexity yet significant lack of expressivity first hand. However this doesn't mean there aren't customers who aren't being productive using W3C XML Schema related technologies and APIs. Lots of our Microsoft's developers love the XML<->Object mapping features of the System.Xml.Serialization.XmlSerializer class.
