Very well.

Right. looks good.

It doesn't actually define the term; i.e. it doesn't use
the conformance language from relax-ng:

"... determine for any XML document and for any correct RELAX NG schema
whether the document is valid with respect to the schema."

Perhaps...

  A SPARQL results document is an XML document that is
  valid with respect to the relax NG schema in section @@.

I'm not sure whether a relax-NG schema file is a relax-NG
schema. I know there's an indirection in XSD.

Since we decided result2.xsd is normative too, we need a normative
reference to XSD.

I can't find the part of the XML Schema spec that says how to
say that a document matches a schema.
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#validation_outcome

Maybe it's not worth the bother; maybe it's clear enough what
a SPARQL Results Document is. But do add the normative reference
to /TR/xmlschema-1/
