Add XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) / http://www.xbrl.org to
that list. It makes EXTENSIVE use of substitution groups and has done so for
a number of years. 

Thanks

I was also somewhat surprised seeing this assumption. I did a quick search
on our XML Schema repository which brought up the following well-known
schemas besides the opengeospatiol.org's ones (GML, etc.):

OVAL (Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language) / http://oval.mitre.org
FpML (Financial products Markup Language) / http://www.fpml.org COLLADA
(COLLAborative Design Activity) / http://www.collada.org HR-XML /
http://www.hr-xml.org
