Here are two:
In http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-rdf-syntax/ there is the example of using
http://www.w3.org/staffId/85740 to refer to a person.
http://www.w3.org/XSL/Transform/1.0 is used as the namespace.
Admittedly, I have less of a problem with a latter case. I would imagine
that soon there will be some document placed at that URI (whether a machine
readable schema or not) describing the namespace.
I have a bigger problem with the former, as I have outlined previously on
this list. To raise again the sample problem I raised before: what would it
mean to use RDF to specifier the Creator of http://www.w3.org/staffId/85740?
Does it mean The Creator :-) or the creator of the retrievable resource (if
any) at that URI?
