Paul is begging the question here -- it needs to be proven that the
use of URLs for Namespace URIs violates any standards, so it is not
fair to jump ahead as if the first point were already proven.
Personally, I'd guess that since the IETF spec governs the use of URLs
only for retrieving resources over the Internet, and Namespaces are a
different use domain, the IETF specs are applicable only to the extent
that the Namespaces REC says they are.
All the best,
