Re: more QName madness

Otiose, perhaps, but not odious.  I do not understand the URIs Good, QNames
Bad point of view, since they are plainly isomorphic.  Indeed, RDF defines
a two-way mapping between QNames and (some) URIs.  It would be more consistent
for you to attack URIs, QNames, and IP addresses, all of which are
universal agreements creating global names, in favor of some UUCP-like
scheme where the node that calls itself "deutsch" is known to its various
neighbors as "german", "duits", "tedesco", "allemagne", etc. etc.
