This is a QA Review comment for "CSS Module: Namespaces"
2nd WD

About http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-css3-namespace-20060828/#syntax

The specification goes on defining that the namespace can be expressed as a string or a URI with the construct [STRING|URI] then later on the specification seems to discouraged the use of URI construct.

	A URI string parsed from the url() syntax must be 
	treated as a literal string: no URI-specific 
	normalization is applied. For this reason the string 
	syntax is recommended, and the url()  syntax discouraged 

Why the original syntax is not:

  : NAMESPACE_SYM S* [namespace_prefix S*]? STRING S* ';' S*

Does the litteral string has to be a valid URI?
