Sorry for the confusion. I intended the concept from the
view point of learning to use XML Schemas. I personally would
not like to see the parser industry design to a sub-set.
I agree that bifurcating the schema world now would be a
"bad" thing. 

As I talk with those who advocating "simpler schemas", I 
will have to be more careful with my words to make that
point clear.
