The exciting use of namespaces in schemas will be when we
have schema documents which contain the syntactic
constraints in xml-schema language, but themselves
use other namespaces to come to express the
entity-relationship model of data (rdf-schema),
legally appropriate presentation (link to style sheet),
financial implication (link to mapping to FSTC
echecks or whatever). The functionality which we
will be able to build into new languages will grow
as the richness of languages to which we can map.

What's to prevent crooks from hijacking schemas via proxies?
