If file:/// is omitted, it isn't an absolute URI, it's a relative one,
and should be resolved relative to the containing document's URI (or
if it's on the command line, relative to some default bse URI such
as a file: URI referring to the current directory).

If the base URI is a file: URI on the local machine, a
schema location /home/richard/foo.xsd should be equivalent to

-- Richard
