Panic might be premature.  Schemas are the bound to be the most
controversial part of the new XML activity, and we should be grateful
that the WG had the courage to put out a public snapshot of their
current (and still incomplete) work rather than maintaining the W3C
shroud of secrecy that has drawn so much criticism.

My recommendation is to send brief, formal comments to
www-xml-schema-comments at and more general discussion to
XML-Dev.  We can leave the horse heads out of the beds until we see
what happens in the next WD.

All the best,
