I'll defer to others with more expertise on the W3C schema question but regarding your test instance, the namespaces specification section 2.2 forbids what you've put forward for testing: http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xml-names-20060816/#iri-use The empty string, though it is a legal URI reference, cannot be used as a namespace name The empty string can only be used for the default namespace to specify no namespace ... it cannot be used for a prefixed namespace.
