(1) Schema processors are now explicitly recommended to provide a user
option to control whether the processor attempts to dereference schema
locations indicated in schemaLocation attributes in the instance
being validated.  See

We are concerned whether the average user can be expected to make a
reasonable decision whether the user agent should deference a schema
location?  After all, this decision may result in an invalidation of the
current document. We are particularly concerned that this is an even
greater burden for the user with a disability.

Considerations on how to represent this question to the user are covered
by UAAG, http://www.w3.org/wai/ua.
