So we (mostly Richard and I, but also the WG) dropped the ball on
this.

We discussed it in April and May, and finally, on 19 May [1]

   "We should fix things so that http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace
    return just the RDDL document regardless of content-type.  Richard
    and Henry know how to do this and suggest we do this.

   "In addition, they suggest we add comments to the obsolete schemas
    saying they are obsolete.  CONSENSUS among those on the call to
    accept Richard and Henry's suggestions.

   "We DECIDED to put this decision into "countdown" until next week
    in case someone not on the call has any comments.  Next week,
    barring objections, we will task Richard and Henry to implement
    this decision.

and again on 26 May [2]

  "We reaffirmed CONSENSUS to go with the above suggestion.

   "ACTION to Richard and Henry:  Implement the above suggestion to fix up
    the XML namespace directory."

we decided to fix things.

However, on 2 June [3], despite neither Richard or me having done
anything, we find:

   "| 2. XML Schema WG is handing off maintenance of the XML namespace to us:
    |    http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-xml-core-wg/2004JanMar/0251
    |
    |   ACTION to Richard and Henry: Implement the above suggestion to fix
    |   up the XML namespace directory.

   "Completed."

Oops.
