A legalistic niggle, which I am sure Tim is aware of more

[case-blind] are reserved for standardization in this or

XML-related standards such as Namespaces, XLink have already
broken the letter of this rule; but it doesn't seem
appropriate that anyone who thinks of a nice XML idea and
wants to propose it for standardisation should automatically
have rights to this namespace, even if he is a co-author of
