Barename fragment identifiers such as the one above, when resolved
against XML documents, always identify fragments of that document, as
a document.  At the level of XML and the XPointer basic framework,
there is no notion of redefinition, or schema components, or any of
that.

If the XML Schema Working Group ever complete their work on Schema
Component Identifiers and define a _new_ XPointer scheme for that
purpose, your question will become relevant.
