Subject: Fwd: [wsn] WSA Namespace policy


This came up at WSN. It is relevant to us as well.

> Subject: [wsn] WSA Namespace policy
>  This came up on the concall today without my prompting.  Apparently 
> we're not the only people wondering.
>  The gist of the policy is: "After a document has been published as a 
> Candidate Recommendation, the namespace IRIs will be updated only if 
> changes made to the document are significant and impact the 
> implementation of the specification."  It's up to the Working Group to 
> decide what constitutes a significant change, but obviously the WG 
> will make an effort to avoid such.  Since the WSA core is now in CR, 
> we can expect the namespace to be stable except if it isn't.
>  For further information, see Hugo Haas's draft at 
> http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/addr/5/08/29-ns-policy.html.  Note that 
> "This document is an editors' copy that has no official standing."  
> This is fortunate; in it the paragraph quoted above reads "... are not 
> significant and do not impact the implementation ...," which  is the 
> precise opposite of what it is meant to say.
>  Someone on the concall caught that one.  It may well be tidied by the 
> time you read this.
