Briefly, all of 'name' (when global), 'ref', 'type' and 'base' are
converted to the <include>ing namespace during a chameleon include --
otherwise it would be pretty useless, in that the <include>d schema
couldn't reference its own elements, use its own types, etc.

Another way to think of it is that the schema is built, connections
made, etc., and _then_ <include>d.  <include> is _not_ a textual
inclusion, it is specified and must be implemented at the component
level.

So your schemas are fine as written.
