Fair enough. I want to reinterate that I don't mean to attack Joshua
personally in the least. I respect his opinions, they are (mostly :-) well
thought out.

The exchange at the end of last week got a bit more heated than was
indicated -- we are just having _yet another_ argument about URIs after all,
it's not like this has any real meaning -- but it seems that arguing about
URIs does this to the best of us... I think getting URIs straight is
actually one of the more important questions we can discuss about the Web in
general so I am willing to spend more than a few cycles trying to get it

I also think that this discussion spilled over from another discussion on
www-tag, and may have come as if from out of the blue to xml-dev folks so
following this I will send another message with my views on URIs and
nameing -- and if you are entirely too tired of this conversation feel free
to kill my next message...
