I just realized I might have misunderstood your comment when
composing my earlier reply.

One way to use 3rd-party schemas is to point from the source document
directly to a transformation, as in a case[2] recently mentioned
by a GRDDL WG member:

<ns1:POLICIES xmlns:ns1="http://www.sil.org/~simonsg/metaschema/gold#"
xmlns:grddl='http://www.w3.org/2003/g/data-view#' 
grddl:transformation="http://iama.rrecktek.com/~rreck/Hopi_ms.xml_interpreter.xsl">

The transformation is developed by rrecktek.com, but the
namespace is owned by sil.org.

I wonder if you find that sufficiently responsive to your comment?
