XML Data is an ancestor of XSchema, as well as DCD and probably SOX.

In my experience, code designed to use the basic parts of one schema 
language (element and attribute definitions, etc.) can be easily converted 
to use a different schema language.  For example, I was able to quickly 
convert code that used XML-Data to use XSchema.  This obviously becomes 
more difficult/impossible when the code exploits features of one schema 
language that don't occur in the other languages.
