James Delmonico asks:

>> I am curious why the specification defines that this information must be
declared again locally when in my case it is being declared by the 
imported
schema? 

Sam Ruby was kind enough to post in his blog the slides for a talk I gave 
on XML schema a few years ago.  If you can handle powerpoint, take a look 
(sorry, no HTML or PDF at the moment.)  See [1,2].   I suggest you run 
them in full slide show mode to see the animations properly (press F5 if 
you're in powerpoint or just run in the browser if in IE) and go through 
to the group starting with slide 25 that's titled "Our language vs. your 
langugae - why <import>?" ,  Some of the other slides may be if interest 
to readers of this list too.  I hope this helps.

Noah
