Is "XSDL" an official way to refer to the W3C's schema language proposal?
The acronym is used a few times in, but never spelled out. Can I
assume that it stands for "XML Schema Development Language"? It's never used
in Part 1 of the Schema proposal itself, and it's only used in Part 2 in
Appendix A, which reproduces (as far as I can tell) Where did the acronym come
into being--in the working group discussions?
