When you publish a set of documents, publishing the schema to which you claim they conform is very useful for everyone.  For one thing, it's concrete, testable documentation about what to expect from you.  This is the opposite of the "normal" use of schemas as input validation: here they are serving as *output* validation as well as documentation.
