I wholeheartedly agree with the first statement, despite the second
statement's contradiction of it. The "original use" is

The first draft of the Schema spec actually used both forms. The WG made
their choice (I'll even take partial credit for them choosing "schemas"--see
my May 1999 comments on the first Working Draft at
html and search for "schemas") and they moved on, knowing that consistent
usage makes a document more professional (from an editorial point of view)
and easier to understand.
