Jeehong:

As long as there is no overlap between the component definitions in
multiple schema containers for the same namespace, I think this should
work just fine.  If there is overlap, we simply need to follow what the
schema spec says about how to resolve repeated components in a schema
(I'm not sure, though, if that's fault, first-one-wins, or
last-one-wins...).
