I'm not completely opposed to this suggestion, though it does seem to add
another layer of elements. What this raises for me is what information needs
to be supported by these top level XSchema elements. Our Doc element, John's
DTD, refers to a %horiz.model entity that isn't declared.
Currently I've suggested that the XSchema element use the following attribute
> XSC:Version CDATA #FIXED "1.0"
> XSC:MimeType CDATA "application/xml"
> XSC:FileExtension CDATA "xml">
Version, MIME, and File Extension are all very well, but what do we do for an
XSchema title? Wouldn't it seem useful to provide human-readable titles or
other information, much as the headers in Rick's proposal do?
We could use the XSC:Doc element to provide this additional header information
as well. Suggestions?

<!-- Multiple title for i18n. Multiple meta for information

<!ELEMENT HTML:head (HTML:title*, HTML:meta*)>
<!ELEMENT HTML:title ( #PCDATA )>
