It sounds like they are either examples or part of the standard
and we cannot tell which.  Is that right?

Do users actually use them?

I presume that is followed by a list of documents, schemas and ontologies.
Could you please send me that list?  Without that, I don't see
what this implies.

I will fetch a copy.

Would you please send me (off the list) one of these schemas so I can
see what a typical schema looks like?

Also, what is the relationship between Org mode and these schemes?
How does it use them or operate on them?  What does it do with them?
What does it do if a document refers to a scheme and the schema is
not defined?

Do users ever modify the schemas for their own documents?
Do they distribute the modified schemas along with their documents?

Do users make their own schemas?  Do users release their own
schemas?  Are any user-released schemas free?

Do they expect users to actually use these specific schemas,
or are they only meant to show what a schema looks like
so you can write your own?

Do users often use these schemas, or do they usually make their own?

All these details of the context are crucial for finding a way to
address this problem which won't be too much work for us or too
painful for users.
