Please inform the staff at ACORD of this problem. They are there to make 
sure the schemas work. Also as Michael pointed out, various tools have 
various levels of compliance or even testing of the rules. In general 
ACORD has used Xerces-J and MS-xml (com version) to validate thier schemas 
as they were found to be the most stable, complete and one from each of 
the MS and Java camps. Recently the P&C standard found a problem in the 
way extensions were to be handled (or thought to be) due to XML Spy 
improving their parser and Xerces not checking the error in the same way.

The only way ACORD is going to correct problems is if they know about 
them.
