I disagree.  I and many other developers depend on having a quick, clear
usage of the Schema with short examples.  Case in point, in the early days,
Dan had not updated a definition change, took 4 months :-), and during that
time it caused much confusion regarding the proper usage and what it really
meant.  After the change, several of us had to go back and update our pages
based on the new definition and the correct intended usage.  If we had some
examples prior, even simple ones, then the whole mess would have been
avoided.
