Thanks for directing me back to the start.
"Go get your self a book" is the best explicit advice I could have gotten.

The Instance is exactly as you say it should be, but still the schema fails
to validate.

Does the Xmlschema-Dev team have less busy person to consult with ??

I didn't say to remove the declaration, or to remove the prefix from
the attribute.  Your instance should begin:

  <proposals xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

I encourage you to look at the Primer [1], or get an introductory XML
Schema book -- you seem to be a bit unfamiliar with how namespaces and
schemas work.
