I don't know about "completing" it - I'm not even sure if that's
possible. I'll probably extend it to handle more aspects of element
content, such as DCD groups.

After that I may take it further, or move sideways into generating other
kinds of XML/XSL from schemas, depending on what seems most useful.

I think schema translation sounds like a good area - the application
doesn't need to run too fast, and, as you say, you will really explore
schemas and XSLT. 

If XML-Data Reduced is a subset of XML Schema, it might be worth doing
the reverse process too, once we have XML Schema validators.
