xsi:schemaLocation is ghastly: the attribute value has way too much
structure.

I would suggest having an xsi:schemaCatalog attribute whose value is
simply a URI of a resource that looks like

<catalog xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema/catalog">
  <entry namespace="http://www.w3.org/1999/Style/Transform"
         schema="http://www.w3.org/1999/Style/Transform/xslt.xsd"/>
  <entry namespace="http://www.w3.org/1999/XHTML"
         schema="http://www.w3.org/1999/XHTML/xhtml.xsd"/>
</catalog>
