Along these lines, it is interesting that both TEI and DocBook are
migrating their DTD implementations to RelaxNG. While they focus on
document encoding rather than metadata, they are complex and
well-established markup schemes. What I've not seen is an account of
why those projects have chosen to migrate to RelaxNG over XSD.
