I just had a minor 'ah-ha' here, combining Dan Connolly's helpful
advice "Validate at trust boundaries" and a comment Michael Kay made
in a thread over on xmlschema-dev:

 "if it's for validation, then what's the point? As a document
  recipient, I want the document to be valid against a schema of my
  choice, not against any old schema that the sender happens to
  choose."

I'm not saying this excuses the attitude towards URIs for namespaces,
but it provides a bit of insight into where it might be coming from.
