A schema-factoring question.  

Is it OK to have more than one <import > with 
the same value for the namespace, but different 
values of the schemaLocation?  

The behaviour of processors in repsonse 
to schemaLocation hints is not well defined.   
So how should one to respond to being told to 
look in two places for components in a single namespace?    
I'd like it to construct a union of the components.  
Is this a reasonable assumption?
