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, David p.s. When I have time to read at more leasure, I can develop some more useful comments. -- David Megginson david@m... http://www.megginson.com/ xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
