It seems you think SVG 1.2 should not provide normative W3C XML Schema.
I suggest you raise this issue with the SVG Working Group and reviewers
as http://www.w3.org/mid/20030604033257.GE10057%40grorg.org this has
been promised many times. I also suggest to contact the W3C XML Schema
Working Group on what use XML Schema could serve.

Right. This leaves many things undefined then, for example, if someone
makes another SVG Tiny 1.2 specification, will it be authoritative? Or
would the W3C SVG Tiny 1.2 specification remain authoritative? I think
this needs to be pointed out in the draft. Also, if both specifications
point out they are authoritative, how would we know which one is truly
authoritative? And note that the wording does not actually reflect the
intention, the RNG is only authoritative if there are conflicts and
"conflict" is not defined in the draft. Perhaps a TAG finding on
authoritative SVG Tiny 1.2 specifications and schemas is needed.
