During the definition of a schema for instances product of Object
serialization, I begin to wonder about the implications of derivation
by restriction in XML: Schema when used with OO apps...
Is derivation by restriction necessary/desirable? could anyone
please explain the need behind it a bit? Is D by R a "threat" to
the conformance principle when using schema to define object
just oblique thoughts... ;) comments?
 loosely put, the traditional conformance principle in OO states: If B
inherits from A, B can be used wherever A can be used.
