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 "220.127.116.11 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.
