It's not biased, the least offensive way I can think of putting it is
that mandatory xsi:schemaLocation is just plain downright stupid, and
that's not conveying the better part of my feeling on the subject, most
of which involves a large variety of words shorter than five letters
that are not acronyms.
If that ever makes it through LC I'll give up on the Web and go work for
a more sensical industry, say astrology, or perhaps breatharianism.
Mandatory DTD can be up for discussion given how it's been used in the
past for quirks mode detection and the such, but for sure if there's any
way to do without it, I sure won't mind.

As am I, except not entirely for the part where he talks about changing
the namespace. Knowing when to change a namespace is a tough call and
generally an unsolved problem, and calling it inconsistent is to
overlook a few details.
