Uh... I don't see that as a limitation... that's kinda like
saying "the main problem with HTML links is that the target of
the link has to be served at the href location." That's how the
web works.

On the one hand, xsi:schemaLocation is counter to the whole
"ground your terms in the web" theme of the semantic web.
On the other hand, GRDDL is partly about reaching out to folks
that aren't quite there yet. So maybe. But I'd like to think
we don't have to reach quite *that* far.
