That's actually importing the schema for schemas.
It declares things like xs:element, but does not define the
base XSD types like xs:string itself of course.

You can use it as an additional QA check for your schemas, to
make sure they conform to the spec in terms of element structure etc.,
although I hope the MS tools use a local copy and don't fetch it from
the W3C servers each time!!
