Scott-

The authors (and various unnamed co-conspirators ;-) of tv:, btv:, 
and other related TV schemes are about to revise and submit more 
unified and technically sound (we think) drafts that will make this 
all much clearer (we hope).

I think Dan was looking for some initial specific feedback on the 
general idea of using DNS as the namespace before redrafting the 
overall document.

Stand by RSN on the bigger picture and the other scheme...

Regards,
	Mike
