         Component: Framework+Attachment

Title: update namespace document 

Description: Now that we have chosen to go with the
http://www.w3.org/ns/ws-policy namespace, and that we intend that it not change
as the specs transition through CR, PR and REC, we should update the namespace
document accordingly.

Justification: see above

Proposal:

Step 1: deprecate the old namespace at [1]

[1] http://www.w3.org/2006/07/ws-policy/

Add a note:

Note: this namespace has been deprecated. The new namespace for the Web
Services Policy 1.5 specifications is 'http://www.w3.org/ns/ws-policy'.

Step 2: change the text in the first para of the 'Stability of this Namespace
URI' section as follows:

It is the intent of the W3C Web Services Policy Working Group that the Web
Services Policy 1.5 - Framework and Web Services Policy 1.5 - Attachment XML
namespace URI will not change arbitrarily with each subsequent revision of the
corresponding XML Schema documents as the specifications transition through
Candidate Recommendation, Proposed Recommendation and Recommendation status.
However, should the specifications revert to Working Draft status, and a
subsequent revision, published as a WD, CR or PR draft, results in
non-backwardly compatible changes from a previously published WD, CR or PR
draft of the specification, the namespace URI will be changed accordingly.
