There is in fact at least one item missing: It is the action item 
regarding unifying change tracking in text and table documents.

The URN schema used by OASIS is described in RFC 3121 (for instance 
available at http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc3121.html)

Though many TCs use that URN schema, there seems to be no rule that 
every TC has to use it.

For XSD as well as for DTDs, URNs might be used for the namespaces, but 
the schema itself can be located by an HTTP URL. This does not apply to 
Relax-NG schemes, and also does not apply to the namespaced names we use 
for instance to identify chart types.

Schema languages currently are also a topic in the UBL TC. Some valuable 
information is contained in the following mail:
