Felix, thank you for catching this XML Schema validation issue. Our
preference is c).

In addition to the XML Schema document, WG should update the Web
Services Policy Namespace document [1]:

a) Update the framework and attachment draft URIs
b) Add a dated version of the XML Schema document for the Last Call
drafts
c) Update the 'Stability of this namespace URI' section with modified
content from the framework doc [2] (modified content is related to issue
3617 [3]).

We noticed that readers have to jump through the hoops to locate the
editors' and published version of the XML Schema documents. To encourage
early review of the XML Schema and Namespace documents, we suggest
updating the WG homepage to include URIs to these deliverables (see the
attached HTML document).

Option B is awful.
Option A is bad.
Option C is somewhat bad, and the best solution.

Cheers,
Dave
