IRIs as namespace names

I propose to allow IRIs (RFC 3987) as namespace names 
in the namespace recommendation (1.0).  Now 
that XML 1.1 and namespaces 1.1 are dead, changes 
to 1.0 are strongly needed.  Some implemenations 
already support namespace IRIs while others don't. 
 
Although this change has impacts on existing XML 
parsers, it is badly needed for interoperability.  People 
will use IRIs if their favorite implementations 
allow IRIs, and will have a big problem when they 
try to use different implementations.


Cheers,

Makoto
