Subject: 1.2 XSD catalog identifiers for subjectScheme and classification domain

The draft 1.3 spec contains the following information. The content is identical to what was in the 1.2 spec, just reworked to improve clarity:

The catalog identifiers use the following patterns.

Creator Pattern
OASIS DITA Technical Committee urn:oasis:names:tc:dita:xsd:filename.xsd:version
Subcommittee of the OASIS DITA Technical Committee urn:oasis:names:tc:dita:spec:specialization-family-name:xsd:filename.xsd:version

  • specialization-family-name indicates the subcommittee, for example, "machinery" or "learning".
  • filename is the base name of the document-type shell or module component.
  • version either is a DITA version number (for example, 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, or 1.3) or is omitted entirely.

Unfortunately, the files that we shipped for 1.2 did not follow these rules consistently. All of the subject scheme and classification domain files used the SC pattern, for example:

 <uri name="subjectScheme.xsd"       uri="subjectScheme.xsd"/>

 <uri name="urn:oasis:names:tc:dita:spec:classification:xsd:subjectScheme.xsd"       uri="subjectScheme.xsd"/>

<uri name="urn:oasis:names:tc:dita:spec:classification:xsd:subjectScheme.xsd:1.x"       uri="subjectScheme.xsd"/>

<uri name="urn:oasis:names:tc:dita:spec:classification:xsd:subjectScheme.xsd:1.2"       uri="subjectScheme.xsd"/>

How do we want to handle this?
