I'm certainly not any kind of fan of W3C Schema datatypes, and in
fact the latest RELAX NG work has moved explicitly away from directly
supporting these because of many inherent issues.

So lets not get too hung up over religious wars here.

My company is certainly pressing forward implementing core components
in the context of the registry based off the current spec's and technical
papers using real and effective XML representations.

Just because certain sectors have not yet understood the utility of 
what is available - does not mean the overall model and details
are necessarily broken.

Is there more work to be done?  Sure!  That was implicit from the 
Wien proclamations.  And EWG and X12 and OASIS will be able
in due course to review implementation approaches and 
determine what actual works.

I think it was your good self that asked "when will the lip-flapping 
stop, and real implementation be available?".

An emphatic "real soon" is my answer to that.  Those interested
will definately be in St Loius for the X12 and EWG meeting upcoming.
