Outside of the Microsoft parser, XML Data is probably dead.  There are 
three other schema proposals (SOX, DCD, and DDML) and the W3C is currently 
working on their own.  XML Data is significant in that it seems to be the 
only schema language that is publicly supported by a parser.

You can find the various schema language specs at:

SOX: http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-SOX/
DCD: http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-dcd
DDML: http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-ddml
XML-Data: http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/NOTE-XML-data/
W3C XML Schema requirements: http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-xml-schema-req
