Speaking of ratholes, doesn't TimBL's position imply that namespace names 
should URI *references* -- the URI itself would point to a document, and 
some #fragment thingie would refer to the abstract namespace that the 
document discusses?  

Forgive me if I misinterpret this ... anyway, that piece by TimBL seems 
like required reading for anyone who cares about this issue.  I for one I 
do find notion that URIs refer to nice concrete bundles of bits on the 
Internet rather comforting!
