Thanks for the correct Robin.

It's good to know this.

 

In the case of XLIFF 2 I'm afraid it'll have to stick with URNs for a while as 2.0 has a processing requirement that involve looking
at the start of the namespace URIs to make the difference between XLIFF modules and user extensions.

 

Cheers,

Caveat: I didn't review the context (your application space), but in general, and in the abstract:

 

URNs are not the "official" way to construct identifier components.   It's true that some OASIS TCs (especially, those TCs started
in years before 2005) use URNs, for various purposes, but OASIS Staff does not currently recommend that practice.  Both methods
work, for some purposes.  But not for others.

 

Please see the guidance provided in the OASIS Naming Directives, where the use of HTTP scheme URI references are discussed, for XML
namespace names and for any (related) kinds of identifiers 

 

8. XML Namespace Identifiers and Namespace Documents

http://docs.oasis-open.org/specGuidelines/ndr/namingDirectives.html#xml-namespaces

 

"Non-information resources using identifiers associated with XML namespaces may be based upon any HTTP scheme URI XML namespace
declared by the TC (i.e., identifiers for named properties, functions, dialects, faults, actions, or any named message types)"

I'm probably coming to late at the party, but using URL instead of URN would be better IMHO, as there could be some documentation
put on that URL. URNs tends to confuse people.
