Why does xml.xsd have a DOCTYPE declaration?

Hi Folks,

xml.xsd is at this URL:

http://www.w3.org/2001/03/xml.xsd

Notice that it has a DOCTYPE declaration:

<!DOCTYPE schema SYSTEM "XMLSchema.dtd" PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XMLSCHEMA 200102//EN">

Why?

Are there any plans to remove it?

/Roger

P.S. Shouldn't the DOCTYPE specify xs:schema, like so:

<!DOCTYPE xs:schema SYSTEM "XMLSchema.dtd" PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XMLSCHEMA 200102//EN">
