Well, remember that RNG provides only validation, not
interpretation:[*] it has nothing like default attributes
or entity declarations. Therefore, the RNG attitude is that
it is the validator, not the document author, who
decides which schema to validate a document against and when.
(Although in practice the schema may often originate
with the document author, or an earlier avatar thereof.)
As a result, there is no provision in either an RNG schema
or a document to refer to the other.

[*]In principle, RNG-based tools could do type decoration
as well, though there are problems with overlapping types
that are not yet solved.
