Joe -- Although we continue to maintain the clear distinction between syntax and
schema, we decided (also at the Dublin meeting --  maybe you were "out of the
room"?) not to perpetuate the distinction between schema and element set name, for
xml. Thus "DC-full" and "DC brief" would be two schemas.  This was the consensus at
Dublin.
