Will the next version of XML Schema have a schema-for-schemas that is st
Hi Folks,
The current version of the XML Schemas specification contains a
schema-for-schemas.  The schema-for-schemas is expressed using the XML
Schema language.  But there are some things that the schema-for-schema
cannot express using the XML Schema language.  

For example, it cannot express this rule: if an element declaration has
a type attribute, it cannot have a complexType or simpleType child
element.  This is an example of a co-constraint, which the current XML
Schema specification does not support.  

Consequently, for things like the above co-constraint the
schema-for-schemas resorts to comments containing English prose.

As I understand it, the next version of XML Schemas will provide a way
to express co-constraints.  So, in the next version of XML Schemas will
the schema-for-schemas be expressible entirely using the XML Schema
