Yes, by a URL. Messages would be smaller in size when we store large numbers of them, and we
can always get the schema using the reference if necessary. Similar to what we can do with
WSDL having a reference to the XSD.

E.g., by URL?  No, nothing like that is built in.

What is the use you have in mind for such a feature?
