You may not know the names of all your keys in advance.

e.g. the "recently used documents" feature I added to gnome-libs once
(now removed due to not being finished) would create a key for each
document, giving the keys globally unique names. Then you can't apply
the schema at gnome-libs install time, you have to do it at key
creation time.
