Hi,
 
Why is schemaLocation is such a monstrous construct? I mean, let's say I
have
xmlns:mycoolns="http://url.com/ns". Then to specify a schema file I need
to write
xsi:schemaLocation="http://url.com/ns
http://someothercoolurl.com/file.xsd" and
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" to boot.
 
Why not to use
mycoolns:schemaLocation="http://someothercoolurl.com/file.xsd" for that?
 
i.e. any schema should have schemaLocation attribute in their namespace
regardless of definition.
Am I missing something?
