There doesn't have to be a schema at all, nor do the documents you put
into a database necessarily have to conmform to a schema if there is
one. (One big difference between SQL and XML).
Do any of the XML databases out there actually require that users
provide a schema and then automatically reject all documents that do not
conform to that schema?
