I'm sorry then. I don't understand how is it related to 
the semantics of Namespaces URI.

Really - I don't see what is related to the original topic of this thread.
Are you talking about some RDF-based framework ? 

I'm talking about the 

<some_tag xml:ns="SOMEURI">

I'm saying that XML Namespaces specification should explicitly 
say something like :

'For now'  "SOMEURI" should not point to any actual 
resource on the web ( maybe  it could point to the HTML file containing 
documentation - but I don't like it. What is 'documentation', damn it? ) 

I want to make it not conformant to W3C Namespaces spec if  
any tool will try using SOMEURI for fetching some document from 
the web until W3C will explicitly tell *what* should be addressed  

I'm not a lawyer so my wording is not appropriate of course, 
but I think that it should be clear what problem I'm trying to 

By the way, why you are talking about RDF ? There is no word 
RDF in the namespaces doc, there is no sign that those URIs 
will point  to RDF e t.c. If you have discovered some way how to 
use Namespaces with RDF - I don't understand how it is relevant.

I'm not talking about RDF. I'm talking about the semantics of 
Namespace URI.

How is this related to your RDF design? Thread gets a bit fuzzy, 
I think. Maybe somebody will provide a summary ? I think I'll do it 
at some point of time anyway, but I'm not sure I'll do a really 
good job ;-)
