The document says in the introduction, [[
More specifically, this specification defines an XML signature element
type and an XML signature application; conformance requirements for
each are specified by way of schema definitions and prose respectively.

So the schema is part of the specification.

Maybe you are asking whether software that validates signatures must
read and use that XML Schema? No, but it must conform to it.
