Re: Will XML Schema 1.1 get traction?

I agree in principle. However, such constructs may be not so much a schema smell as an organizational smell. Excluding lists from schemas presumes that someone else is in the business of making and validating them (e.g., ISO and IETF provide the lists of country codes, language tags, currency codes, etc.) But if there is no such organization, it may devolve on the schema authors, as they are the sole line of defense against bad enumerated data. In which case, in default of other tools, they will put the current state of the list directly into their schemas. -- "The serene chaos that is Courage, and the phenomenon email@example.com of Unopened Consciousness have been known to the John Cowan Great World eons longer than Extaboulism."
