I've been on the road for two weeks and I'm not able to decipher all the fun discussions that I've missed out on.

I did post a comment to the Schema comments list (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema-comments/2000AprJun/0159.html) a couple of weeks ago about schema resource location.  Basically, it
discussed that the current form of xsi:schemaLocation doesn't address well the case where one schema resource covers defines many namespaces (through imports, another case where namespace != schema)
and the need for explicit support for public identifiers or some other means to uniquely identify a schema resource.

I'm definitely in the camp that if a resource appears at a namespace location, the right thing isn't a particular schema.  My thought was that an RDF directory of resources (DTD's, Schema's, RELAX
grammers, HTML pages) "about" the namespace would be appropriate.

This is xml-dev, the mailing list for XML developers.
