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

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


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."

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

Likewise, if you dereference
you get an HTML document.

What's wrong with that?
