Just curious:  why "valid schema document" as opposed to "conforming schema
document".  As best I can tell, the term "Valid Schema Document" occurs in only
one other place in the Rec, which is in a note and thus non-normative.  To my
eye/ear, "valid" has a hint of being valid per the S4S (to the extent one can
actually validate against that), but seems a bit ambiguous on meeting other
constraints.  No big deal, but I was curious about it.

Thank you.
