Re: Question on Importing external namespaces without schemaLocati on Attribute... but it can be unpredictable if the schemaLocation's each point to schema documents describing different subsets of the complete schema which you are trying to import.  What you need is for the document which represents the maximal set of components from the imported namespace to be the *one* that the processor takes notice of. That probably requires some experimenetation in sequencing the includes.

  As you describe them, your schema documents are fine -- each one that 
  references a foreign namespace must <import> that namespace.  The 
  processors I'm aware of only need one location hint for the right 
  thing to happen at validation time, so you should be OK on that front 
  as well.
