Not only is there no need to point to a schema for XSL, there is no schema to point to: the only "schema" is the XSL specification itself. Any actual schema for XSL would have to depend heavily on the equivalent of XML's "ANY" keyword. It is good that the WG did not force a schema on people who do not want one. What would have been the benefit in requiring XSL to declare conformance to a schema that would be so loose as to be useless *anyway*? No one schema language can define all languages, which is why it is best not to tie namespaces to any schema language.
