This is exactly what the W3C XML Schema people said to me when I was
there.  I have had a different opinion since then, and have not changed
my mind.  I do not intend to continue religious discussions here.

But let's review the current status of W3C XML Schema.  REALX NG 
can capture co-occurrence constraints between attributes and elements
but W3C XML Schema cannot.  Schematron can capture advanced integrity
constraints but W3C XML Schema 1.0 cannot.  The W3C XML Schema WG
certainly admits this in "Requirements for XML Schema 1.1".  More 
about this, see " Add co-constraints (RQ-38)".  Although 
the W3C XML Schema WG has been trying for five years, W3C XML Schema 
1.1 is still a working draft.  This is a strong empirical reason that 
one language does not meet all the requirements.
