My question, version clear :)

For validating SVGs, you switched from DTD to the more powerful W3C XML 
Schema format.

For validation of this SVG Schema, a DTD is used. One would think it 
would make sense to switch to a schema too.

In the current Schema for SVG,
there is
<!DOCTYPE schema SYSTEM "XMLSchema.dtd"[...]>

Here is the schema for schemas:

So the doctype of the SVG schema could be changed to

<!DOCTYPE schema PUBLIC "-//W3C//[...]"
"http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema.xsd" [
