RE: About namespaces

Looks legal but the reality is some  
tools attempt to import the schema based 
on the namespace identifier.  When it gets 
that "doc", it will fail because it wants a 
schema, not a human readable description.  The best thing 
to put there today is the actual schema 
or when working with these tools, 
to reach in and modify the namespace 
to point to the local copy of the schema.

As long as Namespaces are URLs (don't 
even try to confound me with specRant), 
systems will resolve them.  Until 
the XML community at large 
comes to grip with catalogs or maybe RDDL, 
we will have no reliable solution. 

Conflating identity with location is a 
botched design.

The best bet for the moment seems to be to put the namespace's Web
site there, so people can read the doc.
