My understanding is that the W3C XML Schema is not normative. That is, it's
a tool that implements the specification, but does not define the
specification. So, if there is a difference between the specification and
schema, the schema will be changed to conform to the specification.
Therefore, RelaxNG would simply be another language in which to implement
I recommend we invite Raymond Martin (and others) to submit a RelaxNG schema
of the specification as another non-normative supporting document. I believe
we can add this at any time, as we would profiles, and therefore it does not
affect the schedule.

Subject: [xliff-comment] RelaxNG as an alternative/additional schema format
I was wondering if you could tell me if RelaxNG has ever been considered for
with XLIFF as an alternative or additional schema format.
If it has, could I know what the reasons were for not considering it? Else I
like to suggest that it be considered and I can help by supplying additonal
and assistance in this matter.
Many document-oriented XML formats have started to adopt RelaxNG, including:
OpenDocument Format, DocBook, RDF, Text Encoding Initiative, and others. It
would seem worthy of consideration for XLIFF also.
Any light you can shed on this point would be appreciated.
