Right, except that you probably want to use <rdf:Description
rdf:about=""> to refer to the "current document"

Yes, while it is not possible to write an XML Schema for general
RDF/XML, it certainly is possible to write an XML Schema for a specific
fragment of RDF so embedded in an XML document.

I'd not worry about this for your specific application. "RDF Schema" is
somewhat of a misnomer in the sense that it doesn't specify syntactic
constraints, rather a mechanism of developing vocabularies and
classifications e.g. ontologies. The <a
href="http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-guide/">OWL guide</a> explains how such
things might be used.
