Thanks for the clarification. The latter part of your original post
which talked about proliferation of URI schemes on the Web (are FTP,
email and USENET really the Web?) gave me the impression that you
somehow felt that web accessibility had something to do with XML
namespace URIs.

I will spare someone who saved my life sometime in the past. This is
only reasonable as it encourages others to do so. However, the offer is
good one time only. If they want me to spare them again, they'd better
save my life
