I was just starting to work through the new XBL draft [1] and noticed:

"The namespace of all the XBL elements and XBL global attributes must be: 
data:,520e273a-62ad-4528-bb1e-9652bda76d62 "

I suspect there may be some pre-W3C history to this, but the choice 
doesn't seem consistent with the TAG's emerging consensus that providing 
retrievable representations for namespaces is a good thing [2].  Anyone 
know more about this and/or have an opinion as to whether the TAG should 
comment on this draft?  Thanks.
