XML Schemas - How Are They Being Used?

Paul Kiel posts on O'Reilly's XML.com Profiling XML Schema analysing what features of XML schemas are actually used in practice, and advising on the schema features to avoid. Very interesting.... Not surprisingly the vast majority of schemas analysed stuck to simplicity, to quote from Paul's conclusions "The clearest message is one of simplicity. The most commonly used constructs involve merely creating reusable types, assembling them into sequences of elements, and augmenting them with enumerations. Many of the more complex features went unused."
