I think camelCase is fine since it'd only require one place to be  
changed instead of others.  Doesn't matter to me at all personally...  
I'll tinker with schema.xml to tweak it, so as long as the example  
schema.xml is solid and consistent I'm happy.  And, maybe, just maybe  
schema.xml will be generated from a user-interface driven model...  
hmmmm.... I'm still on the fence on whether schema.xml should be  
generated or generic, or a hybrid somehow.
