RE: Restrictions on existence of attributes?
I'm not saying take it out because that can't be done. I'm saying figure out the costs and show the numbers. Anyone who is trying not to adopt XSD but is being told by cost-conscious managers it is 'the thing to do' have to see real numbers to know why not. Otherwise, just as PageRank tells us 'what is true' the wisdom of crowds prevails. Reach wins every time unless the local cost argument is compelling. A) A problem is where XSD is required by fiat: see Global Justice XML, etc. No choice. B) MS could incorporate RelaxNG at will. If after all the money spent they are willing to walk away from WinFS (except the bits in SQL Server), they can certainly include alternatives to XSD. No one has made an argument for them to do so that can beat the argument "relax can be run by buying X from Y and installing it." Until that happens, A) will ensure Relax stays a minority option. The subjective views win. len
