This would be extremely useful.  In searching for appropriate namespaces
for DTDs one has to latch onto some form of "organisation". I can see the
attraction of this for - say - CML (Chemical Markup Language) until perhaps
a learned society or other org takes over this role.

I support this.  There clearly needs to be some filtering of what can be
put there and if XML-DEV can help with this we'd be very happy.

I agree. There is an attraction in having something that is obviously
non-aligned. And there is always the possibility of more formal support later.
