I don't see how you could be unsure.

I oppose adding anything else on this point to the specs.

FWIW, you consistently over and mis-state (IMHO) what the problem was  
and then propose overreactions.

(For example, you tend to ignore the fact that the spec mentioned a  
bunch of datatypes as optional and didn't have a good picture of  
datatype extension *and* had an extremely impoverished set of  
required types *and* occurred in a situation where there were  
relatively few implementations and almost no institutions or  
community. None of these are true now.)

The text you cited specifically does what you are asking for. The XSD  
namespace is reserved. That's all that needs or should be said. If  
you think there is a reading of that text that would produce a  
problematic outcome, please suggest it and we can see what wording  
would suffice.
