I don't have any particular evidence that the xerces developers
follow this xmlschema-dev list. I'm happy to see their stuff
discussed here, but be careful about expecting more of
a response than anybody here is in a position to give...

Their web site says:

	"For all questions or comments, write to the Xerces-J mailing list."
	-- http://xml.apache.org/xerces-j/feedback.html

but I don't see links to details about the Xerces-J mailing list...
surfing around, I see:

"The Xerces-J Developer List

                 Medium Traffic Subscribe Unsubscribe 
                 CVS Commit (Xerces-J/C/P) Subscribe Unsubscribe 

                 This is the list where participating developers of the
Xerces-J Java
                 XML parser meet and discuss issues, code
changes/additions, etc.
                 Archives of the Xerces-J developers and Xerces-* commit
                 lists are kept. "
