Attributes, namespace partitions, and schemas

Given the following XML:

<a xmlns="uri1" xmlns:b="uri1" c="d" b:c="e"/>

This seems to be legal according to the namespaces rec (see section 5.3) but I
don't see how it can make any sense to a schema aware application.  

Is it possible for a schema to indicate that the above is allowed or disallowed? 

Should SAX2 report two attributes with the same localName and namespaceURI?

Which value for c should an application honor if it encounters such a case?
