The working group considered your request and decided[1] to change the
namespace of the sparql results format to:
  http://www.w3.org/2005/sparql-results#

which makes the namespace name more friendly to RDF systems
additionally.

This change was folded into the document that defines the results
format, which was recently published as:
  SPARQL Query Results XML Format
  W3C Working Draft 1 August 2005
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-rdf-sparql-XMLres-20050801/

It will in due course be reflected into the next version of the SPARQL
Query WD.  You can see the change now in the example in the editor's
draft at http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/rq23/#select
(section 10.2 Selecting Variables)

Please let us know if this is a satisfactory response.

Thanks

Dave
