owl xml serialization (example doesn't work)

I set up the namespace document at


and modified XML_Serialization to match.   The namespace document
includes a warning:

       Until the specification reaches W3C Candidate Recommendation (CR)
       status, this namespace name may be reused by any update in such a
       way as to cause documents written using the namespace to become
       invalid or to change in meaning. In fact, the namespace may be
       un-defined, if (for instance) this OWL XML namespace and the OWL
       RDF namespace are merged. 

I changed the namespace name in the schema and in the example to not
have a hash (it was "http://www.w3.org/ns/owl2-xml#"), to keep with what
I understand to be normal XML practice.

I notice that the example DOES NOT VALIDATE, because the attribute
ox:URI isn't defined in the schema.  Any clues?  This doesn't exactly
stop us from publishing, but I'd sure like it fixed.
