           Summary: New URI for schema 1.1?
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.1 only
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Structures: XSD Part 1
        AssignedTo: cmsmcq@w3.org
        ReportedBy: sandygao@ca.ibm.com

Maybe we need a new URI to identify the schema 1.1 language. This would help
people (e.g. APIs) to indicate which version to use.

Note this is different from introducing a new "namespace" (see bug 3047), which
we agreed not to do.

As an example, both JAXP and DOM use "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" to
identify XML Schema 1.0 (which happens to be the same as the namespace used by
schema documents). It would be very helpful to those APIs if schema defines a
new URI for 1.1, otherwise they would have to invent their own.
