Subject: Re: [dss-x] Naming of adapted schemes

The use of 'rewritten' in de namespace is a good hint about the original
schema. The use of a prefix with '-rw' is fine but is less formal (a
user may change the prefix but cannot change the namespace).

As a note, regarding the oasis naming conventions:

"URN-based namespaces are also allowed, but HTTP scheme namespace URIs
are to be preferred"


Maybe we should follow this convention. One advantage is that the URI
can be resolved to the the actual XSD (if we put the files in the right

From http://docs.oasis-open.org/specGuidelines/ndr/namingDirectives.html

Formal declarations of XML namespaces are made using a family of
reserved attributes (e.g., xmlns attributes (PrefixedAttName
xmlns:[prefix] and DefaultAttName xmlns) and targetNamespace) in XML
instances and schemas.

    An XML namespace name identified by an HTTP scheme URI reference
must conform to the pattern:


Proposal for each of the (possibly rewritten) schema components:
