As an example of the kind of text that Mike is referring to, the following is
the first sentence of the Abstract from the XML Schema Part 0: Primer which
makes it very clear that the W3C Recommendation is "non-normative":
http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xmlschema-0-20041028/

Abstract
XML Schema Part 0: Primer is a non-normative document intended to provide an
easily readable description of the XML Schema facilities, and is oriented
towards quickly understanding how to create schemas using the XML Schema
language.
