------- Comment #1 from cmsmcq@w3.org  2008-05-27 12:57 -------
A review of all the occurrences of the phrase "valid schema" suggests 
that what is meant is, in all cases but one, "conforming schema".  I suggest 
we change the usages appropriately from "valid schema" to "conforming schema".

For the record, the occurrences are in: 

  3.8.4.1.4 Multiple Paths in Groups 
  4.2.2 Assembling a schema for a single target namespace 
        from multiple schema definition documents  (<include>)
  4.2.3 Including modified component definitions (<redefine>)
  4.2.4.2 Providing Hints for Schema Document Locations

The exception is the occurrence of "valid schema" in the comment
at the beginning of the schema for schema documents in 

  K DTD for Schemas (non-normative)

Here, "valid schema document" appears to be meant; I suggest we change
"valid schema" to "valid schema document".

>From both lists above I have omitted occurrences of the phrase "valid
schema document", which seems to me to be (a) what was intended and 
(b) well defined, modulo the problem reported in bug 5512.
