Thanks for the explanation, it does help...So the namespace will likely be changed by appending or replacing the version number at 
the end of the namespace...

Cheers, Sergey

Case 1:

We do a minor revision (aka WS-Policy 1.6).  There might be no need to change the namespace if it was backwards compatible with the 
WS-Policy 1.5 semantics.

Case 2:

We do a major revision (aka WS-Policy 2.0) and it is NOT backwards compatible with the WS-Policy 1.5 semantics.  In this case I 
would imagine the new namespace might be http://www.w3.org/ns/ws-policy20

There are of course other scenarios but I think these are enough to answer your question.  Does this help?
