Thanks John, for both points.  So one can use the public ID for the namespace 


Then one has to decide if resolution is required. 
"   Process of identifier resolution:

      Identifiers in the "publicid" namespace may be resolved by the
      same policies and procedures as public identifiers.  Public
      identifiers can be resolved in many different ways.  Many existing
      systems provide facilities for resolving them by way of OASIS
      TR9401 [6] Catalog files.  Other systems resolve them by mapping
      each component to a local pathname component.  And some systems   
      simply "know about" a fixed set of public identifiers.  In
      addition, URNs in the 'publicid' namespace may be resolvable by
      other mechanisms unique to URIs (such as caches)." 

No difference other than in
the bracketed fellow has information in it that is extracted 
and used according to some local policy.

Will XSLT trip over the public ID?  I assume not.

It would be strange but an XPath buried in that guy into 
the Schema would identify the direct context of the 
definition.  Not only who, but where.  Ummmm.... maybe 
it's easier to just put the schema inline. :-)
