Then, one again I have misread the recommendation!

Maybe because I am not a schema processor :) ?

To my defense, I'd say that "application" is a very fuzzy word in XML 
land since it's decribing both programs and vocabularies/schemas and 
when I have read "applications are allowed, indeed encouraged, to avoid 
<import>ing the same schema document more than once" I have just taken 
the wrong meaning...

Thanks for the clarification.
