Thanks for your comment.

If you wish to use EXI's schema-informed capabilities in compressing
these documents, the best short-term solution does indeed appear to be
to create an XML Schema for such documents. Longer term, it should be
possible to define another mapping to EXI grammars from whichever
schema language is being used for such documents, and use that in
compression. The existing mapping for XML Schema will undoubtedly
prove useful in such work, by showing how different constructs map to
grammars. Note, though, that the EXI Working Group has no intention of
defining such a mapping for any other schema language than XML Schema.
