This attribute defines a URI of a schema that contains the full representation of this schema. When a validator encounters this attribute, it SHOULD replace the current schema with the schema referenced by the value's URI (if known and available) and revalidate the instance. This URI MAY be relative or absolute, and relative URIs SHOULD be resolved against the URI of the current schema.


Any plans for this?
