Jonathan Borden's recent mail correctly points out that use of a URL as a
URI identifying a schema has some potential problems arising from the fact
that the "http:" scheme identifies a protocol, one that may not always work.
I agree.  However, this is distinct from the issue of whether a URI
identifying a namespace may properly be used in retrieval of a schema.  It
simply means that the URL form of URI has some known difficulties.
