Subject: comment to OASIS XRI TC from W3C XML Core WG

We have reviewed

     Extensible Resource Identifier (XRI) Resolution Version 2.0
                          Committee Draft 02
                           25 November 2007


Although falling largely outside the remit of this Working Group,
there is one aspect of the specification which does concern us: 
suggesting as XML namespace names strings of the form xri://xxx 
given that namespace names must be URIs.

Although the XRI Syntax 2.0 spec. [1] has been a Committee
Specification since late in 2005, we could find no sign of 'xri' 
being registered with the IETF as a URI scheme.  Until this is 
done, it is perhaps not altogether appropriate to treat strings 
beginning 'xri:' as URIs.

Paul Grosso,
on behalf of the W3C XML Core Working Group
