It was dropped because the inevitable question arose: does src= point at a DTD or some to-be-determined-in-the-future other schema language? ... and the subsequent realization that even in the traditional DTD territory, you often have more than one associated with a single vocabulary. Bringing it back won't help with the problem. I still think that dereferencing a namespace URI in an ideal world should yield something containing lots of human-readable explanatory text (ideally in a minimum of two widely-used human languages), plus pointers to lots of different machine-readable related resources, but I've been saying this for 2 years now and don't seem to be winning the argument. -Tim
