I see your point... Isn't it a reason why using a namespace URI to point 
a schema is not good practice (you need to change this URI when you 
change the version of schema language)?

A good net citizenship could be to give the list of all the schemas (for 
the different version of schema language) in a RDDL document ;=) ...

Thanks for your answer,
