Worried about Namespaces and Schemas

I have been too busy with so-called real work lately to pay much attention
to theretical XML issues. I have, however, been worried by the ongoing
conversation about namespaces and schemas, particularly the implications of
lack of strong connection between them. The only thing I've formally
implemented using XML so far is RDF. RDF does specify a strong connection
between a namespace and a schema. So I am left with the nagging fear that
something is fundamentally and badly broken in XML land, and that it will
bite me hard on the ass. Does anycare to translate the intelligent but not
transparent namespace-schema thread into something I can evaluate without
heavy analysis. I'm usually capable of that level of analysis, but as I said
I'm too busy these days.
