/ David Orchard <dorchard@bea.com> was heard to say:
| I've been thinking about the relationship of namespaces to version
| identifiers for a while.  Perhaps the version attribute could be
| relative and then appended to the ns uri, ie ns#version=5 or
| ns#version/5 or ns/version/5?

As a convention for pointing to information about a particular version
of a particular namespace? That doesn't seem like a bad idea. In fact,
it even works for DocBook NG (my pre-5.0 DocBook experiments) :-)

                                          norm
