The safest thing to do, if you just want your ODD to go on working, is to tie it to a particular release date by including a value for the @source attribute on its <schemaSpec>.

Ah yes, my mistake. So you'd need to recompile tei_odds.odd (or whatever
the ODD source for your ODD validation schema is) against an
appropriately dated @source.
