Yes, that is my interpretation of Juerg's 
analysis.  And I see no reference in the XML 
Catalog specification[1] for mapping a namespace 
URI to a system resource.  I've written to some 
catalogue users off-line to see if I'm missing 
something.  If true, then it would be a feature 
of an editing tool outside of support for the XML Catalog specification.

In oXygen I can configure precisely what I need 
to edit the PRD3 genericode files:  a mapping of 
a namespace URI string to a schema location in 
the absence of an xsi:schemaLocation attribute.

I hope someone can point us to this feature, if it exists, in XML Spy.
