Fair enough.  I had forgotten that Namespaces 1.0 was republished at the 
same time as, rather than superceded by Namespaces 1.1.  The question here 
seems to be:  if one has in hand something like an XRI, must one in 
general escape it for use as an XML  namespace name?  The answer seems to 
be: no if the software you use supports Namespaces 1.1, yes if your 
software supports only Namespaces 1.0.  That right?
