The difference being the ##other namespace, right? Otherwise I think they're functionally equivalent.

Great question. I lost track of where the spec is. Last I remember it was going to be edited for 
release. What's going on with that? Unless someone objects, I think we could easily hold a lazy vote 
(i.e. -1, +0, +1) on these schema "bug fixes" and then update the spec if no -1's are encountered 
within a few days.
