Sure, that reserves an attribute for all schemas, but for me it sounds
both
kind of easier to implement and visually more appealing (though I do
understand
your point). And, sure, as you said the application that processes a
document is
free to take the schema from wherever it wants, but... it somehow need
to know where
to take if from, and it's kind of easier to write the location inside
the file
itself.
