OK, so what about:

<a xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="some.uri">
  <b><c><d>
    <a xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="some.other.uri">

where some.other.uri references a schema document that contains 

<xs:redefine schemaLocation="some.uri">

Which definitions are used to validate each of the two <a> elements?

I expect the answer will be that these schema locations are only hints, so
it's entirely implementation-defined: yes?
