Marc,

Adding a note is a good direction but I have a couple of concerns
regarding the correctness of the suggested paragraph:

1) The term "uri" should be changed to "absolute URI reference" in the
context of namespace names. 

2) The XML NS 1.1 CR proposes to use IRIs rather than URIs even though I
think IRIs are still work in progress. However, if they go this route,
it is in fact not an "equivalent" definition. As a result, I would
suggest using the term "similar" instead of "equivalent".

Thank you,

Henrik Frystyk Nielsen
