Indeed, this ground has ben thoroughly covered, and the consensus
we came to is that yes, by best practices and principles of web
architecture, a namespace attribute value *is* a locator; i.e. it's
enough to look up, in the web, information about the names and
definitions:

"A URI owner SHOULD provide representations of the resource it
identifies"
http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-webarch-20041215/#pr-describe-resource


"The owner of an XML namespace name SHOULD make available material
intended for people to read and material optimized for software agents
in order to meet the needs of those who will use the namespace
vocabulary."
