... so it must know/load/download the schema (eg DTD).

What happens where there is no schema referenced (eg no doctype), eg in 
multinamespace documents, or "well-formed SVGs"?
(Personally, I'm not a big fan of either.)

I guess the app that says it can handle the fragments which are in the 
SVG namespace is required to know the SVG schema, which is OK IMHO.
(What's not so great IMHO is that although it has this knowledge, it's 
not required to choke on invalid content; but that's an old battle which 
  will probably never end due to pholsophical reasons ... is invalid SVG 
SVG or not?)

Flag big red errors, loudly :)
