This area is just horribly fuzzy.  I'm pretty sure that for any of
{RDFS, XSD, RelaxNG, DTD} you can make assertions that can't be
made in the others.  At least pairwise.  Alternatively, you 
*could* write a set of schemas that tried to do the same
things.  But this would be unidiomatic at best...  I'm not
really sure we're in content-negotiation territory at all here. 

And as previously noted, to make things worse, it's not unusual
at all to have multiple schemas in the same schema language.
