No, not at all.  I was just suggesting that it is *possible* for two
departments to validate against the "same" schema without using the same
namespace name to actually publish their document to another group.
This is fairly plausible in the case of xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation.

I didn't mean to suggest that Paul was wrong.  There are certainly best
practices that can be followed to mitigate the problems I outlined
earlier, as he points out.  I simply was expressing skepticism that
those best practices are necessarily obvious or likely to be sought out
and adhered to by average folks.
