>It would also seem to entail that the following schema document should give rise to a legal schema: 

  <schema xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
    <element name="a"/>
    <element name="a"/>

>That would be a feasible rule (although it's rather late for such a dramatic clarification), but all the processors I've tested reject it.

They reject it, I think, because they have made the decision to base component
identity on the identity of nodes in the schema document. I think that's the
only approach that is likely to work in practice, but it's not mandated by the
spec. I think our rules for component identity are so weak that a processor
could legally construct a schema from the above schema document.
