 I'm not aware of any dramatic changes in the XML validation area since the
last 3 years so I'd be tempted to say no, i.e. that XML Schema still
remains a decent choice because even though RELAX NG has its advantages
over it (notably relative simplicity) it's still less standard/supported by
various tools than it. As for Schematron, I believe it's mostly used in
addition to either XML Schema or RELAX NG and not solely on its own anyhow.

 I could look more into recent developments in this area but, frankly, I
doubt that we're going to find any earth shattering revelations. IMHO it
would make sense to stick with XML Schema even if subjectively I like RELAX
NG "compact syntax" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RELAX_NG#Compact_syntax)
a lot.
