/ Tim Bray <tbray@textuality.com> was heard to say:
| When you have a new namespace, I think you have a new language.
| Hmm, what would the TAG think of something in webarch saying:
| "Versioning presents a complex set of issues where technical
| requirements vary significantly from application to application.
| Designers of languages SHOULD invest real effort in determining their
| versioning requirements and how to address them.  For XML-based
| languages, designers in general SHOULD NOT embed versioning
| information in namespace names."  -Tim

Sounds like good practice to me :-)
