| Hello Norm,
| Many thanks for fixing this so quickly.

I am taking this comment as an indication that you are satisfied with
the resolution.

| This brought up a misunderstanding about XML Namespaces 1.1 on my side.
| I was of the impression that XML Namespaces 1.1 was fixing some problems
| with XML Namespaces independently of XML 1.0/1.1, such as officially
| allowing IRIs in Namespace URIs, and so on.
| Looking at XML Namespaces 1.1, I discovered that it's indeed very easy
| to get such an impression. One has to go to Section 7, Conformance of
| Documents, to find this stated: "This specification applies to XML 1.1
| documents.". (A careful observer may also get a hunch about this from
| the examples in section 6.)
| If Namespaces in XML 1.1 ever gets updated, please make sure that such
| fundamental dependencies are clearly called out at the very start of
| the document (Abstract, Status, Intro,...). Assuming that just because
| the numbers are the same, people will naturally understand that these
| go together just doesn't work out in the industry we live in, where
| very often dependent products are numbered independently.

Richard has an outstanding action to produce a 2nd edition of Namespaces
in XML, I don't recall off the top of my head if you're concerns are
expected to be addressed in that update or not, but I expect they are.
At least, when that spec surfaces as a WD, that'd be the time to make
suggestions :-)
