The point is compatibility with XML applications rather than XML processors.
In the Java world, many XML applications allow you to plug in any XML
processor that implements an appropriate interface. If there was a way for
associate a RELAX NG schema with an instance, then a RELAX NG processor
sitting on top of a non-validating XML processor could masquerade as a
validating XML processor.  This would allow XML applications (eg XSLT
processors) implemented in Java to use RELAX NG as a subsitute for a DTD.
