My personal take is that namespaces are good for all the reasons that namespaces are useful in other programming contexts. Among these are the ability to re-use types defined in separate standard (for some definition of standard) type libraries. But just because your schema uses the 'widget' type declared in the 'http://widgetlib.org' namespace shouldn't necessarily mean that 'http://widgetlib.org' should appear in your instance documents.
