I moved the status of bug 8611 to resolved=wontfix. Per the
process guidelines in the HTML WG decision-policy document[1],
that means anybody is free to reopen if they disagree with that
resolution, and to add a comment explaining why.

Here is the Rationale section of the comment I added for the
status change:

  In its current form, the H:TML document would not seem to me to
  be the optimal place to publish a schema. I think the group
  needs to first consider the larger question of whether it should
  publish a schema or set of schemas at all, and if so, what
  exactly to publish -- and then consider how/where to publish it.

I think discussion of what kind of schema or set of schemas (e.g.,
RelaxNG plus Schematron plus whatever else) to publish, and how to
publish it, should be raised either as a new bug or as an HTML WG
Tracker issue.
