The registries for rdfschema is unused, the one for publicid only 
contains a single entry for a legacy (1997) version of HTML.

The XML schema registry is just an indirection layer for retrieval of 
XML Schema files (XSDs); this is why I was confused by "Schema name".

So, back to why the proposal doesn't cover XML Schema? I guess because

1) nobody asked for it, and

2) contrary to XML namespace names, XML processors *are* known to 
retrieve XSD files, so it indeed might be a bad idea to introduce a 
single point of failure here.
