Would it resolve the comment to change the sentence as follows:

"The namespace prefix used in this specification for XML implementations
of ITS for above URI is “its”. It is recommended that XML implementations of this specification use this prefix."


Note that above (HTML implementations do not use namespaces) is not 
completely true: ITS global rules in HTML are the same as XML global 
rules in terms of namespaces; see
http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-its20-20121206/#html5-global-rules
for details.
