A few years ago when schemas was first being criticised by the databinding 
community for having too many goofy features that were tough support, we 
asked which features were problematic.  xsd:choice showed up on at least 
one list, notwithstanding that DTDs have had the same capability for 
years.  Now, schema does indeed have too many complex features that are 
hard to map, in my opinion, but xsd:choice doesn't strike me as one of 
them.  :-)  For the record, I haven't heard anyone in the databinding 
community complaining about it lately.  Cheers!
