Error in http://www.w3.org/2001/05/XMLSchema.xsd,dmp ?

It's not essential since it's not normative, but having loaded the
expended version of the W3C XML Schema for W3C XML Schema into my usual
XML editor, I got a complain that, despite its namespace of
"http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema", this is not a valid schema.

This tool has stopped after the first error (the "nillable" attribute is
still "nullable"), but there are some other ones that are quite visible.

For instance, the id attributes have numerical values and the references
to simple datatypes are not qualified (which, IMHO, is an error since no
default namespace have been defined).

It's not very important since this document is kind of internal, but
that doesn't seem to be a good practice and, if it was a valid schema,
it would be a good example to show how a modular schema can be rewritten
as a pure Russian doll.

BTW, if the transformation or code that has produced this expended
version was public it would also be a good piece to learn from.

My 0,02 Euros,

Eric
