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, Jeff Rafter
