"com.myco.spe" and "foo" is are correct URI references.  Part 2 of 
W3C XML Schema 1.0 Part 2 already allows them.

[Definition:]   anyURI represents a Uniform Resource Identifier Reference
(URI). An anyURI value can be absolute or relative, and may have an optional
fragment identifier (i.e., it may be a URI Reference). This type should be used
to specify the intention that the value fulfills the role of a URI as defined
by [RFC 2396], as amended by [RFC 2732].
