The XML schema description language (XSD) certainly has many 
shortcomings, but there are other options, especially Relax NG, NVDL and 
Schematron (http://dsdl.org/), all supported by tools like oXygen 
(http://oxygenxml.com)    (01)

Contrast that to the validation support for JSON - well, basically you 
have http://json-schema.org/ which only supports non-recursive 
structures, generic platforms like ANTLR, or write your own 
(http://json-ld.org/playground/). Take a look at the JSON-LD "Grammar" 
http://www.w3.org/TR/json-ld/#json-ld-grammar. The very idea of schemas 
for JSON is anathema to many JSON users, so don't expect much support 
from the community for this.    (02)
