It's also a good quality check for schema processors...

Seriously, the main role is to provide a more formal definition of some of
the rules in the body of the specification. Although it's non-normative,
experience shows that this can often be useful for resolving ambiguities and
uncertainties. Saying things twice in two different ways often makes things
clearer, and if there's a contradiction, we've made it clear which statement
takes priority.
