Bjoern's point seems reasonably well made.

 http://www.w3.org/2005/sparql-results

seems more consistent with precedent and hence
easier for XSLT/javascript programmers to deal with.

Dave, what do you think?

Well, it's inconsistent with

common W3C practise and depends on authors, developers (think XSLT
authors or JavaScript developers processing AJAX Sparql results)
doing more work (remember more complicated names, typing more), I
don't think any harm would be done if it is changed to

  http://www.w3.org/2005/sparql
  http://www.w3.org/2005/sparql-results

or something along those lines.
