I like this a lot - it seems to sum up what we're doing quite well.  It avoids 
the bands, if not the drugs (XSD?), and I think the other meaning of 'X' 
(Extensible) could be used with it as well.  It also avoids both documents and 
schemas, and sums up what we're providing, at least at first.

We'd probably better wrap up the name contributions soon and start deciding on 
which of these names is the best.  Then it'll be easier to identify what we're 
talking about, and the real arguments can begin.
