That's what I meant by "the URN schemes are not yet defined" (or
whatever my wording was).  In other words, URNs are not yet safe to
use for XML Namespace URIs outside of the IETF (x-* URN namespaces are
not guaranteed unique), but they may be soon.  For now, we have to
keep using URLs.

Thanks, and all the best,
