Namespaces are intended to what you're asking for.  I.e.:

	<?xml:namespace ns="urn:mycompany:MyRootSchema"
	      prefix="myschema" src="http://something/MyRootSchema.xml"?>

I don't see why using a standardized solution is uglier than inventing your
own namespace tag.  This does require you to namespace qualify your instance
information.  I.e. the tags that come from the urn:mycompany:MyRootSchema
would be something like <myschema:xyz>.
