It is a fair question. My thinking is that RDDL does not specify how or
whether a document decides to validate. A RDDL document could offer a
preferred schema using an xl:arcrole such as "#primary-schema" vs.
"#alternate-schema" but that would be up to the processor. If this is
something that people want to do, I we could define URIs in arcroles.htm
which could be used in this situation.
