Try giving a presentation on Namespaces in XML to 180 people at a
conference.  Or even just a presentation on one of the W3C technologies
that uses a namespace.  People do seem to want something there.

It's a real question, despite the best efforts of many to deny it.

Is RDDL the right answer?  I like it better than the crap opaque URNs
often tossed around.  That's all right by me.
