I'd suggest the "reference implementation" of that automatic detection 
mechanism is going to need XSLT (i.e., more than just XPath and that SCD's 
and PSVI don't belong on the list as they are not "programing languages" 
in which such an RI could be written) or schemaTron.  I'd prefer it be in 
XSLT.

By assertion mechanism do you mean, for example, that we might bless some 
specific markup in appInfo that schema authors could populate to assert 
that the schema (fragment) conforms to one or more patterns?  I'm not so 
sure how useful that would be to the community.
