Hi Marcos,

Thanks for the link!
It is very helpful.
It seems, however, that the versioning battle is still there.
The blog you directed me to is still just a blog AFAIK.
So http://www.w3.org/TR/webarch/ may need an update as in the blog, presumably preceded by some discussion.

As a kind of summary, it is ok for me to have namespace as versioning mechanism.
Having namespace + version + baseProfile seems redundant.

Thanks.

Kind regards,
Marcin
