Hi Jeremy,

This message contains a response to comments on


section 2 point 1
names are in namespaces, not anything else

Namespace in XML says:

"An XML namespace is a collection of names"

To suggest that other things are in namespaces is a mistake.
Suggest that the wording of point 1 start something like:

"Properties are named.
The name of a property is in an XML namespace."

The DPF Working Group agree. The text has been modified, so it now  
reads: "Property names are associated with XML namespaces and can be  
arranged in hierarchies. This enables properties to be defined by  
multiple organizations without fear of name conflicts"
