That is an important question, but I don't know the answer.
Can you tell me what a Relax-NG schema is, and what it does?
With that information I should be able to understand the issue.

It took time for me to reach Handa; he will investigate this.

Problems like this are important, and we need to look at them one by one.
A distro can fix the problem in various ways, but what we really should
aim for is get them fixed upstream.

It sounds like you are in a position to report many such problems.
Would you like to help with a long-term effort to get such problems
fixed upstream?
