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.

Cheers,
