An example of the URI identification/representation bug.

How about: "The resource identified by the URI is called a namespace. An
HTTP dereferencable human readable _representation_ of a namespace is called
a 'namespace document.'"

Note: One might choose to identify this namespace document as a distinct
resource via a separate URI syntactically related to the namespace URI. For
example:

http://example.org/thisNamespace (identifies namespace)
=>
http://example.org/thisNamespace.html (identifies namespace document)
