RE: Comments on GRDDL (using 3rd-party XML schemas with GRDDL) [OK?]

I'm replying here since, the changes suggested need to be processed by
the WG.  I have a problem with the suggested text, I'll try to highlight
my concerns in tandem with others who have voiced similar concerns
(inline below and in subsequent redirected responses)

I have a problem with specific language about schemas.  It simply
doesn't make sense.  I noted this in the public-grddl-comments
mega-thread (no response there).  XHTML documents are the only specific
XML dialect GRDDL is fluent in, an XML schema is just an XML document
that may have GRDDL results with assertions that the GRDDL-aware agent
may understand.  

I don't follow how the additional provision about schemas identified via
out-of-band mechanism adds anything to what we have.  Why add
non-normative text about non-normative capabilities that have nothing to
do with a GRDDL-aware agent in a specification for GRDDL?
