[Mono-list] Enumerating over XmlSchemaComplexType.AttributeUses
should return DictionaryEntry objects?

Thanks, good catch again. I am going to fix.

Yes, XmlSchemaObjectTable and XmlSchemaObjectCollection looks different
in this context.

Basically, I think. However, we should not always rely on their concrete
behavior. They might change their concrete logic (even though they are
likely to create new classes, putting old classes aside). So we should
demand compatibility as long as it is rational. (For example, we should
not raise an error for new Uri ("/home/atsushi/test.xml") .)
