Yeah, I thought so.

Do you mean I should turn off qualification and not qualify any non-global
elements in the instance doc? I guess I misinterpreted the usefulness of
qualification. If I can only usefully use a schema with a single global
element, and this is the only way to have a normal inclusion without messing
up instance documents, are the W3C schemas going to keep this in mind? I
don't see any recommendations on this in the primer. Or does the W3C intend
for us to move to explicitly qualifying and declaring every little detail?

Ah, ok, I found that one parenthetical comment you are referring to. I must
have missed it when I was setting it up last week. Is there an XSV option to
produce the qualified and defaulted instance doc after validation? (what are
the -k -w -r arguments and what is the "profile" it can output anyway?)
