RE: XML spec and XSD

If I were asked what the term "family of standards" means, then I would say that it means a set of standards that come from the same organization and are planned and coordinated as a unit. XML and XSD are both within the purview of the XML Activity within W3C, so in that sense they are most definitely part of the same family in a way that WSDL is not. On the other hand, XSD is not part of the "XML Core" (which includes XML, Namespaces, XInclude, Infoset, and XML Base, as well as (somewhat bizarrely) the spec for <?xml-stylesheet?>. So perhaps XML Core is the nuclear family, while XSD, XSLT, XQuery, and XProc are part of the extended family. Then WSDL is a second cousin once removed, while RelaxNG is a next-door neighbour.
