Re: Namespaces and URIs (was: A good case for Namespace URIs)
Hmm... I missed this one. Well, that would certainly be a good way to do it. However, I was just suggesting that if someone wanted to use a URL to identify a namespace, just use a scheme other than the "http". To avoid ending up with a proliferation of new scheme names, we could just define a common one that everyone can use. Whether the URL would be helpful in locating schema documentation or not is another question. The main point is to avoid the use of the "http" scheme when using the URL format, which would at least reduce the confusion caused in situations like "http://www.govtalk.gov.uk/CR/core". --- Seairth Jacobs seairth@s...
