XML DTD/XML-Schema Standards

Can someone clear something up for me.

One major point with XML is to be able to describe your information which
would then allow it to be passed around to other companies applications and
it could still be interpreted.

DTD's/XML-Schema have the job of making this simple allowing this
information to be created according to a standard 'template'.

My question is 'Who currently <i>controls</i> this?' and what are the plans
for this in the future. Is there a DTD resource where you can know that your
info shall be able to be shared???

I ask because I am starting to develop some Corporate and E-Commerce XML
applications and I would like to either follow a standard so that we won't
have problems over the next few years. If someone is not taking some level
of responsibility, the we should probably start to.
