They're using that to point from the instance document to the XML
Schema that should be used to validate the instance document. The
value of xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation is the URL of the schema

(Note that it points to the schema to be used for elements that are in
no namespace, as opposed to the xsi:schemaLocation attribute which you
use to point to the schema for elements that are in particular
