Title:
	Use W3C XML Schema to describe the syntax

Description:
	The current text uses an informal pseudo-EBNF to describe
	the XML syntax of the WS-Addressing header.  See, for
	example, Example 2-1 at
http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2004/ws/addressing/ws-addr-core.html#_Toc77464319
	in the current editor's copy (as of 4-Nov-2004).

Justification:
	This syntax is not defined within this document (nor by any
normativce-quality reference that I can find).
	This syntax is not XML
	This syntax has no mapping to the Infoset
	This syntax is not useful to any widespread XML processors
	The final recommendation will need to have a schema, anyway

Target:
	Every ws-addressing document we produce

Proposal:
	Replace the fake stuff with xsd fragments, include a
complete normative schema in an appendix.
