I must have missed something. Why is this considered necessary? The 
namespace URI seems like a perfectly natural way to identify a class
or group that it belongs to.

I wish there were a more formal procedure for updating RDDL. Even if I 
were convinced that using namespace URIs as natures was a bad idea (and 
I'm not), I still wouldn't want to change the natures at this late date. 
I'd like to raise a formal objection to this, and request that at least 
the existing RDDL natures be maintained as is, unchanged, and without 
any new values for the same natures.
