Schematron Progress

Rick Jelliffe has announced a short document describing the differences between Schematron 1.5, 1.6, and ISO Schematron. The latter being the version that will become part of the ISO DSDL standard.
What with Jing now supporting Schematron, and the publication of James Clark’s Namespace Routing Language document, the DSDL effort seems to be moving forward very nicely.
I’ve always had high expectations for that effort: you only have to look at the people involved to see why. Must devote some time for a closer look soon.
Interestingly, I also note that the latest Oracle XDK supports XML Pipelines. I wonder whether they’re just aiming for completeness or if there have been people clamouring for support?
