Here are just a few comments, some new, on your XML Schema
Primer [1] Candidate Recommendation.

By rough measure, the primer is 295k, at a time when people
are asking for shorter specs. HTML Tidy (or another tool)
with indentation off will remove leading spaces in the source.
This will reduce the file size by 20%. Please see

The examples tables need 'th' header elements to meet level-A
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. See checkpoint 5.1 on
http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/#gl-table-markup and W3C
publication rules. (Tables 1-4 and those in appendixes B and D
look great.)

W3C uses US English. Globally, words ending in ise -> ize

Globally, etc -> etc.

In Status of this Document, Groupconsiders -> Group considers

In 3.2 par. 7, overides -> overrides

In 5 par. 3, summarising -> summarizing

In 5.5 par. 4, well formed -> well-formed
