Subject: Re: [ubl] Re: Summary: How others handle minor version URIs

Apologies, I won't be able to join in this afternoon.  Just quickly, when  
looking at the W3C policy on namespace changes with versions, it is  
important to remember that HTML has an immense audience, and browsers are  
extremely tolerant of errors in and varieties of HTML.  Most XML formats  
don't have that breadth of audience, and most can't be as tolerant of  
errors and/or versions.  So if UBL follows the HTML versioning model, then  
UBL applications will have to be as tolerant of UBL as HTML browsers are  
of HTML.  That isn't something to be taken lightly.

Cheers, Tony.
