The background on that: we can't change the references once a document is
approved (like, say, to CSD), and we can't make the normative reference to
a CSD version before it's been approved, so you have a race condition.

OASIS TC-Admin has stated that using designated cross references is not
appropriate within a single specification's artifacts, so the choice was
made to stop the normative references. The schema is just part of the
artifact set for the specification.

All newer specs follow this convention.
