My response after a very fast skim: it looks like a wonderful first
step -- the time qualification guarantees persistence, and the e-mail
address part guarantees uniqueness.  This is certainly user-friendly
and democratic (my parents, for example, can create their own
namespaces with it).

Personally, I can live with the number.  If anyone is annoyed by it,
Paul and I can volunteer them to work on getting a name.

On behalf of everyone, I'd like to congratulate and thank Paul for
going ahead with this.  In two weeks (I hope), we should actually be
able to use URNs for XML Namespaces, something we haven't in practice
been able to do up to now.

All the best,


p.s. When I have time to read at more leasure, I can develop some more 
     useful comments.
