I'm still not sure there'd be a real benefit. It depends on how much 
code would end up being shared. If a lot of code is shared it might make 
sense to merge them (or factor the code out into a general schema-based 
serialization and deserialization framework). If it turns out your 
improvements to z3c.schema2json also make sense in z3c.schema2xml then 
that's an argument in favor of sharing code between them.
