Speaking of rug pulling, Martin Duerst was just pointed out to me 
that the latest draft of IRIs 
<http://www.w3.org/International/iri-edit/draft-duerst-iri.txt> now 
removes the < and > characters from what's allowed in an IRI. 
However, section 9 of the namespaces spec indicates that these 
characters are legal in IRIs.

It's not too late to fix this inconsistency in Namespaces so it's in 
sync with IRIs, but there may yet be other subtle shifts like this 
one further down the line before IRIs get finished. XML specs that 
want to use IRIs really need to wait until the IRI spec is complete.
