I find this whole conversation a little weird. You are saying that 
people tend to mis-spell URIs. I'm telling you that the standard 
technique in XML for avoiding mis-spellings of all types (whether 
element type names, attribute names or namespace names) is to use a 
schema or DTD. You in turn make this sound as if it is some kind of 
highly unusual procedure.
