I take no responsibility for the "(it just)" part [Lisa added that] :-)

Seriously though, how can it be a strange statement? Either something has a
namespace that is just a name (like the ns spec. sets out), or it has one
that is deferenencable for whatever purpose (as allowed by the ns spec.) -
it doesn't matter which one as long as it is the one that meets your
particular software's specific needs. If it is RDF, then it might want to
dereference it. If it's XHTML, it won't. If it's XML Schema, it might do,
and so on...

I don't see the problem anymore...

Kindest Regards,
