It is an objective fact that you are proposing an atypical use of the
import feature. Whether avoiding that is in and of itself an advantage is
a personal belief.

That doesn't at all address the point I'm making. Extra definitions found
in the schema don't prevent documents that ignore those definitions from
validating. Adding an import if you don't have the schema it points to
does.

I think both your and my positions are fairly clear and the WG can decide
the matter.
