Hi Phil,
I have updated the schema. See inline comments below for details.

Fixed previously.

We talked about "ancestor" at the phone call. I removed the comments from
"mix" and "namespace", added "ancesor" as a child of "interface", and also
as "mixin". Then sent an email to Ingo to see if this makes sense to him.

I sent an email to Ingo about this.

Removed scope from "constructor".

Restored "datatype" on "exception". Also, removed "parameter" and
"returns", which I believe was a mistake.
