I can see the argument for symmetry between the namespace and no namespace 
cases.  However, the most important point to keep in mind in all cases is 
that schema locations are _hints_.  What the processor does with any or 
all of them, and what it does where there are two hints for a given 
(no)namespace, is at the processor's discretion. 

Always:  processors are to assemble schemas to meet the needs of their 
invoking applications.  Schemalocation is a tool that is sometimes useful 
as a hint.
