Note that "DAV:" uses a scheme name defined solely for the purpose of creating
this namespace. Defining new schemes for namespaces is discouraged. "DAV:" was
defined before standard best practices emerged, and this namespace is still used
only because of significant existing deployments.

Note that "DAV:" uses an URI scheme defined solely for the purpose of creating

namespace is still used only because of significant existing deployments.
