I like your I-D about Sieve in XML and find it is a good idea. I have two remarks (not very important). First, why did you choose the W3C Schema language instead of RelaxNG? I understand it may be a matter of taste, but I'm curious. Second, to represent Sieve comments, you use XML comments. But a conforming XML parser MAY ignore comments so there is a risk that round-trip conversion may lose comments. Moreover, your schema (and the associated XSL script) forbids to put comments intended for the XML version only such as: <!-- Produced by sieve2xml on 2007-11-02. Do not edit. --> Such comments would be translated back to Sieve, which would be unfortunate. I suggest instead to create an element <sieve-comments> to store them.
