Sometimes the W3C server screws up -- this isn't a namespace problem
as such, just a failure to retrieve the schema for schemas -- try
again (but first fix the most obvious error throughout your schema:
you don't define names in other namespaces by 

<element name='psd:...' ...>...</element>

For documents with multiple namespaces, you must combine multiple
schema documents, one for each namespace.  See the relevant section of 
the XML Schema Primer [1].
