Yes, but that is only my opinion.

The reason given by many people to avoid the YYYY/MM format for Recommendations is that it requires the person using the namespace URI to remember when the specs first went into CR or when they became Recommendations:

Which are easier to remember:

http://www.w3.org/ns/ws-policy
http://www.w3.org/ns/ws-policy20

or

http://www.w3.org/2007/02/ws-policy
http://www.w3.org/2008/01/ws-policy
