This issue was originally reported by David Ezell.

The XML Schema 1.1 specification must choose either to use the same
namespace as 1.0, or to use a different namespace, or to use more than
one namespace.  An explicit decision should be made.

In our general outline of compatibility goals for 1.1, the WG agreed
that we would avoid changes to the XML transfer syntax, in order that
XML Schema 1.0 processors can successfully process 1.1 schema
documents.  This seems to some to entail making no change in the

At the same time, we also agreed that changes to the XML transfer
syntax might be made nevertheless, if they were necessary in order to
support versioning better.  This seems to some to imply that any final
decision on whether we will make breaking changes is still out; if we
do, some WG members will wish to entertain the possibility of changing
the namespace, or adding additional namespaces.

This topic was raised in the Working Group call of 1 July 2004
and it was agreed to create a separate requirement to make it easier
to track.

The underlying issue applies to both Structures and Datatypes.  This
Bugzilla entry is for Structures.

According to the requirements document, this issue has not been classified.
