Excellent choice.

I agree, this is evil.

The .xml is misleading, why not putting a .rdf or .owl (as the standard 
practice by w3c)? Why not naming it 'oa' instead of 'schema'?

For the final request of Ivan, getting an HTML (+RDFa) page for the 
spec, I find specgen very powerful and this is then very easy to 
generate your HTML version of the ontology, see 
https://bitbucket.org/wikier/specgen/wiki/Home which also lists all the 
other alternatives.
Best regards.
