I think we don't have a schematron step for the same reason we don't
have a p:tagsoup or p:tidy for cleaning up HTML.  They are open-source
projects and not specifications.

Many of the schematron features will be available in XML Schema 1.1.

None of this precludes there being a "standard" definition of steps
outside of our current Version 1 specification.  In fact, I'd be an advocate
of producing an ancillary specification that defines additional step
types at some point in the future (i.e. after our current specification goes
