*Is being* dereferenced. I don't believe XBRL can function without finding
the relevant schemas. XMLSpy (3.5 beta) certainly wants to pull any schema
it can dereference when looking at the example document from XBRL.org
and also is kind enough to ask me if I'd like to update from
http://www.w3.org/1999/XMLSchema to http://www.w3.org/2000/10/XMLSchema

This may be a useful example when thinking about Tim's question about 'what
some good ways
are to map from the namespace to the semantics'.
