I don't know all referenced editors in detail, but at least oXygen and
XML Mind are able (and it is preferred way) to bind schema/behaviour
based on namespace of edited document.

I suppose that every reasonable XML editor should support binding based
on namespace or at least XML catalogs (as David mentioned) -- otherwise
it would be very uncomfortable for user to fetch DTD (presuming that it
is even existing) on each file opening.
