Subject: Schema & BP Spec: Items for today's BP/CC meeting

It's only my opinion (I haven't talked to anyone else on the team), but I
feel very strongly that both Schema and DTD versions should be available.
They often are used for very different communication/integration purposes
in different ways... now, you could do one or the other and write a
tranform document... but don't just do one. Schemas are too hard to
integrate into narrative text (even though they may/may not be as precise)
and many times schemas are the best choice for integrating back into
database situations.

This is just a thought and I know if it does not come to pass in this
iteration, it will down the line.

Time permiting, I strongly recommend we deliver a schema version.  DTDs are
not precise enough for defining interfaces (structure and strings) and the
BP Spec Schema is essentially and interface.
