RE: Musing over Namespaces
My thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread. Some of you thought I am proposing removal of namespace. I am not. What I am doing is trying to see what lies beyond our technical concerns. I do not accept that the current standardization practice is the best one, just better than before, and I believe we focus too much on logic and not enough on the big picture, the one that astronauts see when they look at Earth from out of space. I think the real question I am asking is: What if we were coerced into proactive standardization? What do we lose and what do we gain? The registry/dictionary I mentioned is a form of coercion. Appropriate amount of anarchy can be introduced with distributed architecture similar to DNS. XML-DEV old timers might recognize that this distributed name registry network is similar to the TagNet idea I wrote briefly about two years ago. Looks like I am going around in circles. <g> Don Park - mailto:donpark@d... Docuverse - http://www.docuverse.com xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
