I agree: I've just sent a similar proposal to public-qt-comments.

An alternative solution would be to make XSLT use *only* the schemata 
specified by <xsl:import-schema />. If a stylesheet contains no such 
element, schema-aware processing is not allowed.

That seems logical to me: "psvi-aware" processing, as defined by the 
current spec, is essentially a two-phase transformation: one from xml to 
psvi as specified by a schema, and one from psvi to xml, as specified by 
the stylesheet. I think the entire transformation should be controlled 
in one place only - in the stylesheet itself - rather than partly in the 
source document(s) subject to the rather ambiguous "Schema Document 
Location Strategy" defined in the schema spec.
