I noticed on the todo list for the Protocol v.0.6
the wiki lists "XML Schema".
I thought I saw a page some time ago which had a DTD in it, and someone
suggested we use RELAX NG instead to define the content model. Can't find it
now. That person was right. We'll have a lot more joy with it. It's also a
good idea to add attribute constraints etc (like the nonsensical no repeated
tag keys constraint) with Schematron.

And in any case, can we please define XML namespaces for any schemas we create,
if we haven't already? It can become very difficult working with documents
And I take it the API itself (the interface) is almost finalised and it's too
late for comments? If not, where do you prefer them? Given recent discussions,
I guess the list.
