Sorry if I'm being a little slow here, but a couple of things:

1) Do you really mean nALFS, or are you referring to the next 
generation, ie, the addtional tags that NeoCool defined?

2) I thought I understood that in the XML world, if a parser doesn't 
understand a tag or attribute, it just ignores it. So why do we need to 
use a new Schema definition? (I'm sure there's something I'm not 
understanding correctly here. ;) )
