HabitatsAndBiotopes in WCS

Am I understanding correctly that the HabitatsAndBiotopes data can be provided trough WCS, as this data theme is listed in the Technical Guidance for the implementation of INSPIRE Download Services using Web Coverage Services (WCS) at page 14 in the PDF (page 5 in the upper right corner) or it is a mistake in the TG for WCS(as the SpeciesDistribution theme is not listed in the WCS TG even if it is similar to HB Data Theme)

If Habitats and Biotopes can be provided trough WCS, then where is the XSD for the HB in which the coverage elements are present?

Don't see any declaration such as xmlns:gmlcov="http://www.opengis.net/gmlcov/1.0" or xmlns:cis="http://www.opengis.net/cis/1.1/gml". Am I missing something?
