Well, this schema is certainly not valid standalone. It strikes me as a bit
too clever to write a schema whose definitions are invalid until they are
included in the context of another importing schema (namespace is a
different matter). I've read some of Roger Costello's work, and it's fair to
guess that he would probably consider this a feature, but to my eyes it's a
bug. Maybe that's just pig-headed narrowmindedness on my part.
