A namespace URI is not meant to be a URL, even though some people 
(including myself) use it as a URL for an information page of XHTML 
(sometimes with added RDDL attributes).

A namespace URI certainly was never meant to be the URL for an XSD file.

There is no XSD file for XSL-FO.  Not only would the myriad of 
attributes and their multiple components make it a very big file, but 
XSD semantics are insufficient to express all of the nuances of the 
vocabulary.  For example, <basic-link> can have either 
external-destination= or internal-destination= but not both ... and 
you cannot say that in XSD-speak.

An XSL-FO file is validated by the XSL-FO engine that interprets it.

I hope this helps you understand the situation.
