ISSUE-12: indentifying a conformant schema

http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/databinding/issues/12

Raised by: Paul Downey
On product: Testsuite

Our charter calls for a deliverable of:

"# A method for identifying the patterns so that conformance of an XML Schema to
those patterns can be verified. Note that this method is not intended to be used
(and must not be used) by Web Services toolkits as an excuse for restricting
their support of XML Schema."

Do we supply an assertion mechanism, and/or an automatic 
detection mechanism based upon XPath, SCD's or the PSVI?

It would seem that an automatic method would be particularly useful
in finding test schemas 'in the wild' and the XML Schema test suite
which already exhibit our recommended patterns, though could prove
to be complex to implement in practice.
