Ages ago, the TAG picked up an issue[1] about namespace documents.
There was much discussion and, at the time, some desire[2] to create a
different specification. Many were proposed[3].

I believe we asked the AC about namespace documents and they asked us
to propose a format. Some variant of RDDL seems the logical choice.

Time has passed. More RDDL 1.0 documents have been published. And
recently, some improvements to XLink have been proposed[4].

I'm no longer confident that it makes sense to persue a newer,
different RDDL.

What do you think?

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
