I must have missed this having only recently joined the WWW-TAG list but
since when was GETting namespace names considered to be acceptable
practice that should be encouraged? Note, I am not agreeing or

Rule of Accuracy: When working toward the solution of a problem, it
always helps if you know the answer. 
Corollary: Provided, of course, that you know there is a problem.
