To me the complaints so far have been very vague. E.g. "the semantics of  
the schema attribute are not defined". It's not at all clear to me why  
they need to be defined and what the measurable effect would be if they  
were. I'm sure that if the issue was explained a little better it would be  
easier to determine if we simply disagree or just misunderstand each other.
