Very interesting... Are you planning to go the full way and to complete

Related to this: I have been playing around with the idea to use an XSL
stylesheet to transform a subset of the current W3C draft into something
that IE5 accepts as a schema. Although this wouldn't add any functionality
to what IE5 provides, it would allow to start using a more standardized
format, and it also would allow to easily test what's currently drafted.

Now it seems to me that this is a very obvious thing to do -- is anybody
else working on this?
