RE: ISSUE-4 (html-versioning) (vs. ISSUE-30 longdesc)

I didn't mean XSD specifically, it could be RelaxNG (as being used by the SVG committee, for example).  

I understand that text/html(5) is not to be validated by an XML validation tool, but as text/xhtml(5) has to be valid and conforming XML - then I would expect some schema against which it could be validated...

No. XSD is woefully inadequate for validating (X)HTML5.

However, the WG can't prevent anyone from writing an approximate XSD schema anyway.
