   Re: [xml-dev] RDDL (was RE: [xml-dev] Negotiate Out The Noise)

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The unfortunate problem with RDDL and all the alternatives except (1) is
that you cannot tell without looking whether there will be something at an
NS URI, and if there is, whether you need to know about it.  But the door is
already closed on (1) owing to common practice, particularly in the schema
area.  I suppose it would be possible to institute a convention that certain
URI types are defined not to be looked up, while others guarantee that
something will be found.  But a convention is probably all it would be.
