Hi, Mary and others.|
The namespace http://dita.oasis-open.org/architecture/2005/
is officially part of the OASIS DITA 1.0 and OASIS DITA 1.1
specifications. See the following topics in the specifications:
Can someone clearly and thoroughly explain just
what the ramifications would be if we were to change this to align with
OASIS's namespace policies?

would seem to be the easiest way forward and avoids the current case of
a 404 return message, which fits my definition of "the principle of
astonishment" that standards usually try to avoid! ;-)

don't know what it means for a namespace to be at a location.
DITA namespace name is http://dita.oasis-open.org/architecture/2005/.
someone puts a namespace name into a browser, they are
supposed to be served a namespace document. That is a recommendation
W3C Technical Advisory Group headed by Tim Berners-Lee. I don't not
see OASIS violate this, and I would hope you and the other people who
OASIS policy [isn't that supposed to be the OASIS members, i.e., us]
want to violate this either.
something needs to be served when
is accessed. The easiest way to do that is to put something at
something can either be the namespace document or a document that
redirects to a copy of the namespace document.

assume by "namespace" you mean the namespace document.
