Re: [xml-dev] Convention versus standard

I would agree that having a namespace be dereferenceable is a best
practice, but it is not a convention. For something to be a convention
I believe it has to be the conventional practice in a community, and
it is certainly arguable that it is not as yet conventional for all
markup languages to have dereferenceable namespaces. That said I
believe one could argue that is has become a convention for large
standards organizations to use dereferenceable namespaces.
