A namespace does not require a XSD schema (or a schema in any other 
language.) A schema does not require a namespace (you can have more than 
one schema for the same namespace, and certainly more than one schema 
for no namespace.)

ElementFormDefault only applies to how names are interpreted in an XSD 
schema. It does not have any relevance to how namespaces or prefixes are 
used in instance documents.
