Subject: Re: [ws-rx] NEW ISSUE: XML Namespace URIs

Blech. I hate 50 foot long URI's, it is so unnecessary. Frankly, there's 
no reason that the 
namespace URI needs to include the 'committees' path segment. I believe 
that the new AIR provide
for the use of a pattern as follows (see sect 7.2 and 7.3):


for a product folder. Also, there is a TC folder which we can use:


We could put the RDDL in either location, hence, it could be the root of 
our namespace
tree.  I think that 'wsreliablemessaging' as a value for the [product] 
name is too long. Maybe
we could just leverage the [tcName] and have a namespace URIs like:


That's a 44 character namespace URI versus a 74 character namespace URI, 
and 51 versus 67.
Note that despite the fact that there will be a RDDL document at the end 
of these URI's, there's no
need to add a filename with an .html extension. See the current namespace 
URIs for example.

I think that the other thing that we want to consider is the versioning 
strategy for the namespace
URI as this will inform us as to whether we might choose a namespace URI 
at the start, that doesn't
change with every CD.
