Hi Phil,

Organically as a practical matter, new work in W3C that uses XML is
definitely using Relax NG.  I don't think there is an official policy
statement or something like that.  A telling example is the XHTML2.0 spec
(work in progresss) at http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml2/ . It is supposed to have
Normative schema in RNG (Sect B+C), XSD (Sect D+E), and DTD (Sect F+G).
Only Relax is filled in. I have spoken with folks active in other W3 working
groups and they report a similar pattern.

thanks,
-rohan
