Subject: OASIS namespace design and resources

Hi Mary,

I got some question regarding the OASIS namespace design.

Background: In ODF 1.2 there will be two new namespaces, described by 
the new ODF 1.2 OWL grammar and used in ODF documents in the new RDF/XML 
manifest.rdf files.

After reviewing your latest version of OASIS guidelines [1], I realized 
that my current proposal


needs adaption to:


Behind the version, the path includes the sub-committee name 'meta', 
because the XML elements are RDF elements and exist only in an RDF/XML 
file as elements and as well 'pkg' or 'odf' to destinguish two sets of 
XML elements according to the two layers of ODF 1.2:
1) the ODF package layer defining the zipped package reusable by XML 
formats than ODF XML and
2) the ODF document layer related to the ODF XML schema

Would the naming schema consist with the OASIS rules?
As the desired resource behind the new namespace URLs are RDF 
vocabularies, I would like to ask, if OASIS is able to provide a 
mechanism as described in "Best Practice Recipes for Publishing RDF 
Vocabularies" [2]. This approach is used by RDF related sites (e.g. 
[3]). The basic idea is that the server returns an RDF/XML file for RDF 
crawlers, but some human readable resource (XHTML) in case of user 
agents/browsers. In our case the XHTML file would be a RDDL namespace 
document [4] [5].

If such a mechanism [2] is possible I will create two RDDL files for the 
namespaces, otherwise the OWL grammar would be more adequate than RDDL.

Finally I got one further resource to be accessed from an OASIS server:
The XSLT GRDDL file to map the RDFa and meta.xml to RDF/XML, that I 
would suggest to locate at
