Subject: Re: [ubl-ndrsc] RE: [ubl-lcsc] RE: consistency of BIE XSD files

We can use xsd: as a canonical prefix, but in no way will it be 
"standard".  XML Namespaces allows any prefix -- even multiple prefixes per 
document -- to stand for the same namespace URI.  It's the URI that is 

That said, xsd: is canonically used in most specs/schemas that I know (at 
least, the ones that don't use defaulting), so I prefer it as the prefix.
