Understood. I had neglected to factor in the effect of schemaLocation

So depending on the service offered, it may be useful 
to programatically ignore "helpful" schemaLocation hints and rely
solely on a local cache. Section 4.3.2 of
the XML Schema Part 1 http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#schema-loc
leaves the door open for products to allow this.

Thanks for your patience.
