cool.

Checking the Editor's draft.

http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-namespace/#syntax

The syntax for the @namespace rule is as follows (using the notation  
from the Grammar appendix of CSS 2.1 [CSS21]):

namespace
   : NAMESPACE_SYM S* [namespace_prefix S*]? [STRING|URI] S* ';' S*
   ;
namespace_prefix
   : IDENT
   ;

It is said:
"A URI string parsed from the URI syntax must be treated as a literal  
string: as with the STRING syntax, no URI-specific normalization is  
applied."

Just a question:
	what is a URI-specific normalization?
