OK, I've read that.  The first problem has nothing to do with URI-ness. 
  The second and third are consequences (I gather) of dereferencing a 
namespace name at run-time.  Here our experiences differ; I've never 
seen a programmer try to do that, with the exceptions of RDF-heads, who 
know what they're going to get.

Any other data points out there - are people (outside of RDF) building 
systems that depend on runtime namespace name dereference?  Just because 
I don't see it doesn't mean it isn't happening. -Tim
