/ Patrick Stickler <patrick.stickler@nokia.com> was heard to say:
| What counts is that it is clear which version of which
| model must be used to interpret the data, and ideally,
| each version of each model would be identified by a
| distinct URI which is communicated to the recieving
| agent and via which, information specifically about
| that particular version of that particular model could
| be obtained.

I'm hoping that the combination of namespace name and version will be
sufficient. Making the version a URI might be a good idea though,
since DocBook can be extended by others. (Without changing the
namespace!? Yep. Such has it always been with DocBook.)
