I made a mistake in raising the question of whether the schemas are
software, because in regard to whether the program is free, that
doesn't matter.  Data for the program to use in order to operate is
not software code, but it is part of the program so it needs to be
free.  For instance, images are not rules, not code, but we won't
include an image in a free program if it is not free.
