FYI.  I note that this note encourages/mandates   urn:s
instead of http: URIs for namespaces in direct contradiction
with the current draft by Tim Bray.

Subject: "Guidelines for the Use of XML in IETF Protocols"

> Abstract:
>    The eXtensible Markup Language (XML) is a framework for structuring
>    data.  While it evolved from SGML -- a markup language primarily
>    focused on structuring documents -- XML has evolved to be a widely-
>    used mechanism for representing structured data.
>    There are a wide variety of Internet protocols; many have need for a
>    representation for structured data relevant to their application.
>    There has been much interest in the use of XML as a representation
>    method.  This document describes basic XML concepts, analyzes various
>    alternatives in the use of XML, and provides guidelines for the use
>    of XML within IETF standards-track protocols.
> Intended Publication Status
>    It is the goal of the authors that this draft (when completed and
>    then approved by the IESG) be published as a Best Current Practice
>    (BCP).
