At best, XML Schemas are commonly considered to be primarly data- and
not document-focused. Furthermore, the spec is crap, and the
implementations are only able to make some sense of this crap.

Sorry for being so frank, but after teaching some courses on XML
Schemas, I'm quite convinced it is a horribly bloated language.
