[Various sensible questions and suggestions about instance->schema
linking, namespaces, etc.]

The XML Schema WG has been working VERY hard on these difficult
questions, and the next public working draft will contain a detailed
set of facilities for instance-schema linking, schema aggregation and
validation for documents with multiple namespaces.

This pros and cons of dereferencing namespace URIs as raised in this
thread were very much part of our deliberations.
