It's history. Leaving aside the question of how damaging W3C XML Schema has been, it simply wasn't part of the original XML vision. The three parts were supposed to be markup, style, and linking, learning from SGML, DSSSL, and HyTime respectively. Markup, inheriting from the SGML vision, included DTDs. I suspect that counting validation as a fourth component might have eased some problems all around, but that wasn't clear at the outset. That kind of change seems like a project for XML 2.0, not for an edition change. (And, of course, I'd argue hard against any effort to incorporate W3C XML Schema explicitly into XML 2.0....) -- Simon St.Laurent http://simonstl.com/
