I'm going to be stubborn about this: _if_ we drop the target (I was 
already aware of you not pushing to drop the schema, no problem here), 
then the few people who care about the schema won't be warned about 
required changes anymore.

I don't see any relation between the grammar, where and when it should 
be used, and the lack of exception handling code in the tree processor.

But since we are the only one who care to continue this thread, let's 
drop it. I'm going to check what Sylvain has to say about it.
