This is a little over my head, but with respect to schema languages and
interoperability/reuse, to what degree does the XML Schema language
itself influence this?  I ask because I've noted that many high-profile
XML projects (TEI, OpenOffice, and DocBook, most notably) are all
moving to using Relax NG as their primary development language, and
part of the stated reason for this is that RNG is well suited to
interoperability and reuse.

See for example, this post by Norm Walsh on cooperation between DocBook
and TEI to allow mix-and-match elements in future RNG-based schemas:
