This is one of those horrible cases where the spec explicitly says that
xs:include operates on schema components, and then says that its treatment
of the schema components depends on something ("whose code was qualified")
that (as far as I can see) isn't a property of the schema component, but
part of the syntax of the schema document from which the component was

(What is "code" anyway? I suspect it's a misprint for "form".)

In fact I think this is a red herring. I think the chameleon include affects
all nested element declarations whose {target namespace} is .absent.,
regardless of the reason why it is .absent..
