It seems like the gettext policy regarding ITS rules is to push for downstream
projects to maintain their own (eg. #54819) and that sounds perfectly fair.

ITS rules are XML file themselves. Considering that third-parties are expected
to provide these XML files and that gettext will later parse them, I think it
would make sense for gettext to ship schemas for the ITS format version it is
expecting to find.

The W3C ITS working group is providing NVDL + RELAX NG schemas as part of
their test suite [1] [2]. From a third-party point of view, I'd find helpful
if gettext was to install these in its data directory (and provide a
pkg-config variable pointing at this directory).
