W3C XML Schema will disappear

I just ran across Jame's Clark's year old, but still excellent criticism of W3C XML Schema. If anything, it's gotten better with age.

If you're working with W3C XML Schema, it's time to take stock. Then read the RELAX NG tutorial and ask yourself what technology you'd rather be working with. As the mainstream of web services developers run and not walk away from RPC-encoded toward REST, Doc/Lit and SOA systems, RELAX NG looks certain to become the de facto schema language.

It doesn't really matter that much what schema language you are using. And I do not agree that W3C XML Schema will disappear in near future. In fact it seems like more and more companies are investigating on W3C XML Schema and wxs based tools are coming from every somehow important company. I do agree that Relax NG is better designed and more intuitive to use, but the difference is not that big.
