Can multiple inline schemas have same targetNamespace?

I would appreciate it if you could address the following issue that I have seen in WSDLs of 2 customers in the past month.

One vendor's SOAP stack is creating WSDLs with multiple inline schemas that have the same namespace.

Here's an example:
<xs:schema targetNamespace="a">
types and elements
<xs:schema targetNamespace="a">
different types and elements
<xs:schema targetNamespace="b">

It's not clear to me whether the above is legal or not (two schemas with the same targetNamespace="a").  Should XML parsers for WSDL be smart enough to handle the above?  Or should parsers report errors?
