This is as good a place to ask about web services ephemera as any...

I don't think you'll find it in any schema.  If I recall correctly,  
it's defined by the WS-Policy Attachment specs (the specs that define  
how you mark-up, e.g., a WSDL or UDDI entries) to reflect the policies  
attached to components.  The wsp:UsingPolicy element is a kind of  
marker that goes in the WSDL as a poison pill for processors that  
don't know what to do with it.
