Since the "example" schemas provided don't actually contain any
declarations, it's impossible to tell.

Certainly, though, if the hypothetical SchemaA contained an element
declaration which referenced a complex type defined in SchemaC or
SchemaD, a conformant XML Schema processor would toss its cookies,
lacking an import in SchemaA for either of those schemas.  That's the
behavior we want for WSDL, as well.
