Re: Round 2: How an XML instance document references an XML Schema

If you didn't have to specify the namespace URI again here then you could naturally specify schema on elements from the null namespace just by pointing to a schema which defined rules for elements not in a namespace. Because you do have to specify the namespace then you can't do that without inventing some magic syntax, and also you have to enter the (possibly long) namespace URI of the elements in the document twice once for the namespace declaration and once for this error check. I would guess that mostly a failure of this error check would be due to mistyping the URI rather than _trying_ to access a schema for the wrong namespace.
