what's wrong with using XML Schema/HTML/RDF to document namespaces?

I invite folks to use this namespace
name in their documents:

  http://www.w3.org/XML/2000/04schema-hacking/my

If you GET that thing, you'll find
an XML Schema document which allows
a machine to distinguish a syntactic
subset of XML documents that are
consistent with my expectations.

Why is that not OK?

i.e. DaveO, please elaborate...

"20:49:07 [DaveO]
I will object to XML Schema being OK."

Likewise
  http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns

if you dereference that, you get an RDF Schema.
What's wrong with that?

Likewise, if you dereference
  http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml
you get an HTML document.

What's wrong with that?
