uri name
The most common convention I have seen is in use (at least by us at
Microsoft) is 


which is typically easily recognizable by most who see it as a namespace
URI unlike HTTP URLs(some of which break the unwritten rules of the web
by not pointing to network retrievable documents).

Assuming that we don't want to hang them off the root directory (e.g.
http://www.snee.com/foo) the two obvious choices are a directory name to
identify namespaces as Simon did or a subdomain (e.g.
http://mynamespaces.snee.com/foo or http://ns.snee.com/foo or whatever.)

Has anyone seen any conventions repeated often enough to qualify as
