Republished finding: Using Qualified Names (QNames) as Identifiers in Content

At the meeting of 15 July 2002, the TAG concluded that conflicting
requirements and design goals have introduced an ugly hole in the web
architecture surrounding the use of QNames in content.

Rather than attempt to make recommendations that would be inconsistent
with one form of accepted practice or another, the TAG has decided
simply to strengthen the position of this finding as a "warning post"
and, for the time being at least, leave it at that.

I have updated the finding accordingly.
