Hi Dan,

The WGs believes that the specification supports both the use of schema 
documents that are retrievable from the namespace name and schema 
documents that are pointed to from the document itself. We do not believe 
that there a provision for using other schema documents (e.g. schema 
documents retrieved from a local repository).  If this capability is not 
provided, then we believe that this should be mentioned in the

I just realized I might have misunderstood your comment when
composing my earlier reply.

One way to use 3rd-party schemas is to point from the source document
directly to a transformation, as in a case[2] recently mentioned
by a GRDDL WG member:

<ns1:POLICIES xmlns:ns1="http://www.sil.org/~simonsg/metaschema/gold#"

The transformation is developed by rrecktek.com, but the
namespace is owned by sil.org.

I wonder if you find that sufficiently responsive to your comment?
