No, you didn't, and I apologize for the implication that you implied that 
:-). 

Seriously, I've just seen so many people over the years saying "Surely 
namespaces must be used THIS way", for some variation in the value of 
THIS, that I had some concern that the apparent endorsement or even the 
kind words about NVDL might be taken as suggesting that the idioms it best 
supports were preferred.  You didn't say that, but if NVDL is discussed 
positively (and I have no problem at all with doing so), I think it might 
be useful to provide nearby a brief reminder of where it fits into the 
bigger picture, and an indication that the things it does well are often 
but not always the best way to set up your XML versioning architecture. 
Sorry for the confusion.
