I'm not really sure that we'd need to execute it. We only document  
core on api, and schema.module makes the existing data structure
self documenting (as far as I understand).

This same information would be available to all contrib modules, for  
anybody who installs the schema module, similar to how you can
get api documentation by installing the api module.

It would even theoretically be possible to have the schema module  
produce an image (which can then be cached) or svg file
  (which would be trés cool) from the information it has (ie: foreign  
keys and the like).
