Which is not that of how to "associate a schema with a namespace", but that of
how to associate names in a known DTD with namespaces specified in a known
document. They are often conflated. The work on schemas may eventually lead to
their simultaneous solution. This does not mean that they are the same.

The namespace REC specifies the first issue as outside of its scope and
"punts" on the second.
