RE: namespace URI name conventions?

Just to add to the confusion, I've used both in my own documents. I tend to use the /ns/ directory name for my general vocabularies, but where I'm defining namespaces for a particular application purpose -- e.g. for a JSP taglib or XSP logicsheet, then I've used the subdomain approach, e.g. taglibs.mydomain.com, mainly to more clearly signal this purpose using a memorable URL pointing to a browsable site for their users. I've not noticed any real conventions beyond this. Although adding version indicators seems to be another common usage.
