Well as I interpret it the draft-04 and 06 both specifies $ref as valid attribute on a schema . And as far as “doesn’t” make sense. To me it makes much sense as a shorter syntax of using anyOf with just one reference.

allOf: [ {"$ref": "#/definitions/i_ref_obj"} ]

Note: that my original example is condensed. The real world usage is to reference another schema in combination with “parameters” where the reference is there to extend the referenced schema.

I can confirm this is correct. Think you can probably close this one =]
