I'm not that big a fan of trying to make the schema namespace be an
actual working URL.  Should the schema's namespace end in ".xsd"?
That seems weird.  Plus we have no control over the location for many
of the schemas we use (other projects we use, the Sun schemas, etc.)
And it might result in us scattering our schemas across several
directories on the site, which over several releases could get quite

In contrast, we can point to the correct URL in e.g. a comment at the
top of the schema, and any file using that schema can include an
attribute pointing to the specific URL for the schema.  But I guess I
don't feel super-strongly, other than that I think the main navigation
for the site ought to always let you get to a listing of the pertinent

Another possibility would be to just set up aliases or redirects so we
can file the schemas where we want and then make the namespace URLs
forward or redirect to the actual schema files for additional

This is mainly for updating the web site but I think it would be more clear for everybody
to have matching names anyway.
