In the situation I was thinking of, I was working within an industry 
group that was migrating from DTDs to XML Schemas. There was an 
expectation that XML Schemas would allow better mixing and packaging of 
vocabularies. Unfortunately, the shared components weren't actually 
shared and instead it just created a lot of conflict because of the 
global types. It came down to a vote between venetian blind and russian 
doll. I was outvoted ~70 to 1. But believe me, russian dolls would have 
been a great solution ;)

All the best,
