Hi,

I am keen that we avoid the problem of xsd namespace, which is:

http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema# in rdf
and
http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema in xml.

What is the implication of choosing

http://www.w3.org/ns/prov#


for the PROV XML schema?

Would the XML schema namespace be

http://www.w3.org/ns/prov#

or would it be

http://www.w3.org/ns/prov


Thoughts?
Luc
