Like in good perl tradition, there is would be more than one way to 
achieve this :=) !

For instance:

1) Verbose way (may be shorten by internal parsed entities):

<!DOCTYPE xs:schema PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XMLSCHEMA 200102//EN" 
"XMLSchema.dtd" [
<!ENTITY foo "http://example.org/foo";>

<xs:schema targetNamespace="&foo;" .../...

<xs:element ref="&foo; bar"/>
<xs:element refns="&foo;" refname="bar"/>

2) Mimic of xmlns:

<xs:schema xsns:foo="http://example.org/foo";


<xs:element ref="foo:bar"/>

3) W3C XML Schema specific way:

<xs:import namespace="http://example.org/foo"; prefix="foo"/>


<xs:element ref="foo:bar"/>
