"DAV:" isn't a RFC2396-compliant URI reference either, because it starts 
with a scheme name.

This issue has been discussed extensively in autumn 2002, the result 
being that RFC2396bis will change the grammar to allow empty scheme 
names, thus (finally) making "DAV:" a valid URI and thus a legal 
namespace name.

Best regards,

Julian
