Regardless of whether XSchema rivals DTD notation for brevity and clarity, we
still need it. The compelling reason for XSchema is not besting the readability
of DTD notation -- a visual schema editor is far clearer than both -- but making
schema information available through XML tools (which are numerous) rather than
DTD tools (which are not).
For this reason, I would vote against directly using RDF in XSchema, as it means
we will have designed something we can't use.
