Interesting question. I just found out that XSchema does allow inline
XSchema elements (5.1.2) but I am not sure if it supports schema
Actually, my questions were more or less regarding existing support. DCD,
XML-Data, and RDF does not seem to support inline schema although they do
allow declaration of datatypes in data instances.
I think inline schema is particularly important in applications like digital
television and smart cable boxes where content variation is tremendous. It
is possible to do this through multiplexing/tunneling but it would be nice
to have a single stream of XML data which can handle open variety of
contents (drama, shows, program schedule, advertisement, closed captions,
