In early examples, this is what is happening - most namespace URLs that
people are actually using typically point to a human-readable document
explaining what the namespace is about.  Seems like good practice.
Hard to enforce, though.  Worthwhile trying?  Can we expect to see
litigation over the quality of the documentation, or the fact that 
it's provided only in some particular human language?  -Tim
