Licensing an XML schema

I am looking for the best way to license an XML schema under Open Source.

If I understand correctly, by licensing under GPL, I would forbid the schema
to be used by
any software that is not  licensed under GPL. Therefore a commercial program
could not
use it.

If I want to develop the schema under Open Source, but allow commercial
software to use it I should license it under LGPL.

Is this correct?

Any other option?
