Well I am of the opinion that if dereferencing a namespace name works then it
should result in something meaningfully related to that namespace in some way.
So you didn't misrepresent my opinion, even if you did misrepresent my intent
(probably due to me not being clear enough in the first place). However that is
a slightly different topic and probably best for a different thread, especially
since "something meaninfully related" is harder to define for namespaces in
general than it is for predicates and classes used with RDF.
