speech grammar spec recommends xsi:schemaLocation [namespaceDocument-8]

Regarding our discussion of self-describing documents,
or documents that are grounded in the Web, as well
as namespaceDocument-8, I just discovered...


It is recommended that the grammar element also indicate the location of
the grammar schema (see Appendix C) via the xsi:schemaLocation attribute
from [SCHEMA1]. Although such indication is not required, to encourage
it this document provides such indication on all of the examples:

<grammar version="1.0"
 -- http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-speech-grammar-20040316/#S4.3

I would have thought that

<grammar version="1.0"

was sufficient info to ground the document in the web and,
among other things, find the standard schema. I would think
that schemaLocation was only useful/necessary in case the
author meant for the document to match some more constrained

Also sent a comment because the namespace document says
"This namespace may change without notice."
speech grammar namespace document gives misleading change policy
