Now that we are talking about ‘M12N’, I wonder when there will be an 
updated draft with finished Schema implementation?

We at Backbase <http://www.backbase.com/> have a product which mixes 
XHTML 1.0 with tags in our own namespace, which we call BXML tags. I 
have been trying to create generate a Schema from our so-called ‘master 
reference file’ for a while, which went pretty well by itself, but 
unfortunately I quickly ran into issues caused by the Schema not being 
finished yet.

Because, as I said, we’re generating this from another file using an XML 
transformation, DTD is not an option (and I don’t want to use one of 
those terrible things anyway). Nevertheless I would very much like to 
generate such a schema, in particular for code completion and validation 
in XML editors such as XMLBuddy for Eclipse.

So, I’m greatly anticipating a new version of the spec :).
