[fdo-internals] Standardising FDO Schema's

I fully agree with Orest and Robert.

I also understand that ~ signs in class names are not pretty. 
Also, even bigger problem is that is some cases after class is created with ApplySchema schema  in next DescribeSchema call it will not return exact same Schema.Class name. Class name or schema name or both can be different.

I have decided for KML provider to have configuration XML file in which user can set which Schema.Class name which will be returned for particullar file or url. Suggestions ideas ?

Yes, it's clear to me.

But still the question is if a name should reflect that
layering or not. Users may be confused trying to rely on schema names in 
more detailed way than just uniquely identifying a feature schema in 
connected datastore.

Anyway, IMO the discussion in this thread is useful :-)
