BTW, I was wondering why that didn't generate any SVN commit
notifications. At least I didn't see any kind of notification that
would have allowed me to review your changes. I think that is
something that should be fixed.

I think we should indeed seriously consider promoting projects such as
XmlSchema, Axiom and Woden to TLPs (and any subproject that is viable
on its own).
