maybe this is a stupid question, but _why_ does
take two URI ?
What is the point of the first one giving a namespace? It seems to be
one source of the complication, and currently I don't see how
it can be used.
After namespace processing the names in both the schema and the
document are all fully expanded to (uri,local-name) pairs, so it would
seem that the only question was whether these pairs matched and so I don't
see how the namespace URI in schemaLocation may be used. Having to have
a URI makes it difficult to refer to the unnamespaced case.

Is this the _only_ use of the first URI, to generate an error if it is
