This is correct. While VOResource schemas are in development, we use the
ivoa-based namespace even before it is posted (and just use schemaLocation
as necessary). This (hopefully) results in less interruption for the
prototypers when we move to the phase of a posted working draft.
BTW, as an example, refer to http://www.ivoa.net/xml/VOResource/v0.9; this
namespace URI resolves as a URL to the XSD.

Thanks, Marco. This is not a big deal, but in the future, we should
probably not post schemas to the standards area until the schema editor
makes a specific request. This allows them to control the vetting a bit
more and reduce the number of times they have to knock at your door.
