[THREDDS #QDH-105441]: which schema to use?

Hi Ellyn,

The schemas don't change very often, or at least, not nearly as often as the 
TDS.  I believe they will also be backward compatible, so if you have an old 
catalog that references an old schema, you should be fine.  You may get into 
trouble if you use new features with an old schema, as it is generally new 
features that require an update to the schema.

Updating the schema in the catalog entries probably falls into the category of, 
"If it ain't broke, don't fix it," but if you happen to be in the mood, it 
shouldn't hurt to reference a newer schema.
