I don't know how Xerces finds schemas, but a namespace declaration does
not have anything to do with assigning schemas or anything else.  It
only gives you a way to distinguish names that might otherwise be taken
to be the same.  You definitely don't want something as changeable as a
file location on your own machine to be a namespace designator.
