No it isn't. 
A discussion of target namespaces and unqualified locals is available in the XML Schema Primer at http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-0/#UnqualLocals

	Just to clarify, the way I now understand this is that you cannot specify a
	default namespace in an instance document unless the root element is from a
	separate qualified namespace.  Is this correct?

	Exactly what it says -- you have (by default) specified that
	locally-declared elements (which 'publisher' is) must appear
	unqualified, but by using a default NS decl in your instance, you've
	caused it to appear qualified.
	Either use an explicit prefix on the document element only in your
	instance, or add "elementFormDefault='qualified'" to your xs:schema
	This is a FAQ, sorry for the brief answer, there must be a longer one
	around somewhere . . .
