I like what John says.  It connotes the nuttiness of 
having useless declarations and therefore, attempts 
to get the authority of note to lock down the agreement 
on the use.

I can put BAFFLEGAB://myrant.com/myrant 
in the namespace value, and I can have a 
*consistent* expectation that it won't be 
dereferenced.  I can't guarantee it, but 
I can expect it.  If I put http or ftp there, 
my expectations will quickly become frustrations. 
Why?  The browser turns it blue and makes it 
clickable.  Sorry, but the running code does set 
the expectations and that is just the way a 
global interoperable system bounces.  Rail at 
it, curse it, ignore it; you built it.

consistency:  expect to see this term in lots 
of places where there are no guarantees but there 
are expectations.  Consistency is almost analogous 
to system.

Not to mention John Cowan's: ' requiring that if a version number appears in
the XML declaration, that it must be "1.0".'
