Section 2.6 of the Primer (Annotations) states:

"XML Schema provides three elements for annotating schemas for the benefit of
both human readers and applications."

Am I correct in assuming that these three elements are "annotation" "appInfo"
and "documentation"?  If so, is it also fair to say that only "documentation"
and "appInfo" can actually store any annotating information, and that the
"annotation" element is only a wrapper/container?  This certainly seems to be
the case from looking at the schema for schemas.

Ian.
