The first statement, that namespaces are identifying labels only, is
correct.
 
The answer to the second statement, which asks about how they are intended
to be used, depends on whom you ask. I think different people have different
ideas about how namespaces are intended to be used. Certainly, products are
allowed to use the namespace URI as input to any kind of
implementation-dependent magic for locating a schema document. That might
include attempting to dereference the URI.

Would it be correct to say that namespaces are url labels only and are not
intended for use to locate and retrieve .xsd documents?
