Is the problem here the content of the namespace spec or the way it is
written? It seems to me that people who feel that the spec is a compromise,
or wish the spec specified something different, are unhappy. If you really
don't understand the spec, how can you claim it is a ramshackle compromise?
I suspect that you understand it and don't like it.
The problem doesn't appear to be the way the spec is written and a
professional writer won't solve that problem.
