Yes, but we have an XML (instance) DOM, an SVG DOM, an HTML DOM, it seems to
me like an XML Schema DOM would be very useful.
I s'pose you could also build XML Schema SAX interfaces, as well!!

Then you would need an extension of SAX that would also 'model' XML schema.

I don't think it would be wise do develop a new object model to represent
XML schema. DOM represents XML files in general, and XML schema's, being XML
files, should be modelled in DOM.
