I don't quite understand your question.  In your second example, the
<Person> element is not associated with any namespace, neither are the child
elements, nor are any of them associated with any schema.  I think that is
the end of the story.

Let me see if I understand this correctly.  If I wish to indicate in the
instance document that everything between <Person> and </Person>
conforms to the schema in urn:person-schema/person-schema.xsd, then this
is the correct syntax:

<t:Person xmlns:t="urn:person-schema"
          xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema/instance"
          xsi:schemaLocation="urn:person-schema
                              urn:person-schema/person-schema.xsd">
    <fname>Helen</t:fname>
    <lname>Jones</t:lname>
</t:Person>

If the above is correct, then please tell me what it means when we don't
declare the namespace:

<Person xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema/instance"
          xsi:schemaLocation="urn:person-schema
                              urn:person-schema/person-schema.xsd">
    <fname>Helen</t:fname>
    <lname>Jones</t:lname>
</Person>
