Subject: RE: [chairs] What can Standards Development / TC Administration do tohelp?

How about having a service whereby TCs can request the allocation of a namespace, rather than making one up and falling foul of the hard to interpret guidelines. This could also be accompanied with a partially filled out rddl document that points to the right places.
