I would agree with Jean, we have to keep everything as simple as possible.
Using schemas, which they do not have currently a lot of support, we
should make this optional. If you want to develop small application you
should not impose to the application to verify the input against of a
schema. This would prove very beneficial in a client-server model, where
the client has to have a very small footprint!
