URIs are not an acceptable replacement for human-readable identifiers, and contribute mightily to the smog of arguments about complexity that surrounds XML. Even apart from URI poisoning, I would much rather have three different schemes whose names are meaningful rather than one scheme whose names are extensible but whose usage is unclear. In general, I much prefer the pattern: <givenName>Simon</givenName> to: <element name="givenName">Simon</element> >From my perspective, the latter is preferable, with or without URIs. ------------- Simon St.Laurent - SSL is my TLA http://simonstl.com may be my URI http://monasticxml.org may be my ascetic URI urn:oid:188.8.131.52.4.1.6320 is another possibility altogether
