if you want to use the schema definition to build user interfaces
it would be fine
1.) if regular expressions to describe value constraints are  supported and
2.) if one could specify a visual representation, especially for
enumeration values
      <ElementType name="x" visual="ReadableName" ....>
      <datatype dt:type="enumeration" dt:values="a b c"
dt:visual="aReadableName bReadableName cReadableName" .../>

This enables easy customization of visual representation of XML objects
without changing the base XML object.

Does this sound reasonable ?
