Applications should use subschema discovery to check whether
the server supports the schema elements they intend to use
and, hence, already knows.  Applications should not use
schema which they don't have any knowledge of, except for
some definition provided in a subschema.  Subschema doesn't
provide the application with knowledge of semantics.
