I'm wondering here how this relates to the other URLs in the service catalog that aren't intended for external consumption, e.g. the internalURL and adminURL. I had assumed that these URLs would be visible to external clients, but protected by firewall rules such that clients would be unable to do anything in anger with those raw addresses from the outside. So would including a schemaURL in the service catalog actually expose an attack surface, assuming this was in general safely firewalled off in any realistic deployment?
