Forget the idea that namespace names are URIs. There's a lot of wishful
thinking in the spec that says using URIs for namespace names is a good
idea, and indeed a lot of people do use namespace names that look like
URIs, but the bottom line is that they are actually random character
strings and they don't mean anything.
