[seek-dev] Namespace in query.xsd

Hi, devs:

After today's dicussion with matt and kevin, I recalled a long time issue 
in query.xsd. I think it is time to fix it now. In query.xsd, the namespace 
element has attribute maxOccurs="unbounded". This means the namespace 
is repeatable and you may search multiple namespace documents in one 
query. But our decision is we only search one namespace documents for one query.

I double checked the stub files in ecogrid service and found the namespace 
is an array of QueryType_namespace objects rather than a single 
QueryType_namespace objects. This is consistent to our current 

So if we changed the query schema, we need to change the stub files and 
metacat, digir, geon and registry implementation classes.

Any suggestiong and comment will be appreciated.
