Subject: Re: My comment on the geo-oasis namespace URI

Thanks for the clarification Alessandro,

I don't know why that formulation was chosen, especially since I 
prefer the formulation you mention in parentheses. However, the HTTP 
scheme was not, as far as I know or recall, an intended use, though I 
would say now that it should be because developers will almost 
undoubtedly be using XMLHttpRequest objects in Ajax for asynchronous 
requests and responses whether we allow for it or not.

So we may want to do this when we submit EDXL-RM for its second 
60-day Public Review. We can resolve these issues together, since 
they are not confined to geo-oasis, and I want to make sure that we 
can have Gary Ham on board when we do that, and possibly reach out to 
Karen Robinson to see if she can join us, too, for these schema
