Re: [xml-dev] My report on experiments with unused namespaces

It's legal according to the namespace spec, but deprecated by a later 
note. Relative URI references are allowed but deprecated, the result of 
a long winded discussion some years after the namespace rec was 
published as noted in (at least) the third edition of the namespace spec.


The use of relative URI references, including same-document references, 
in namespace declarations is deprecated.


This deprecation of relative URI references was decided on by a W3C XML 
Plenary Ballot [Relative URI deprecation]. It also declares that "later 
specifications such as DOM, XPath, etc. will define no interpretation 
for them".
