Sure.  I wasn't implying that the data scheme is a mistake in all cases, 
just questioning the wisdom of using it for namespace names.  Sounds like 
the XBL folks are likely to change to http anyway, in which case this is a 
nonissue.  I'm glad I brought it up, and I'm glad the pertinent group was 
already planning what I consider to be a 100% appropriate resolution to 
the concern.  I suggest we leave it alone.
