Ah... Sorry. Thought you'd caught the start of the thread...

c15n is short for Contextualization. It's a concept whereby
a URI is resolved based on some locally defined set of context.
In academic research it could be based on research appropriate
copies (edition 1 vs edition 2, photograph vs digitization, etc).
In the cases we have been talking about here it means taking
some URI and resolving it based on your localized concept of
what that URI identifies (i.e. you think you have a better XML
Schema than the owner of the original, you have some locally
cached copy, you don't trust the holder of the URI to not change
the bit of XML underneath you, etc)....
