discussing the exact structure of the URI is a bit bike-shedding, as it 
is nothing but an opaque identifier. it would be smart for the w3c to 
have a naming policy/recommendation in place, but if they don't, then i 
think pretty much any path is ok.

the only thing i think would be smart to avoid is to create the 
impression that the namespace applies to the terms as they are used in 
AS1, which is why i would vote against any URI that says something like 
"AS1" in it.
