RE: Overloaded URIs must GO!
Hi David, David said: Yes, but only by the IETF, unless the IETF starts assigning parts of its URN namespace to other users. XSL, for example, still cannot use a URN for a namespace today. As Paul mentioned later, we could use an x-* URN namespace, but that's actually less safe than a URL (it's not even guaranteed unique). Things will change fast once there are other URN namespaces available, but I can see no good case for arguing that people should be using URNs rather than URLs as namespaces today. Perhaps by the end of the summer, things will be different. Didier says: Its not so linked to the fact there is other name spaces than if you want to use URNs as place holders or as names resolved with a DNS server that would return URLs. This, with the goal of location independence. regards Didier PH Martin mailto:martind@n... http://www.netfolder.com xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
