Could you flesh out this proposal a bit more?

I like it very much, but I'm concerned that URI-related issues identical to
the ones we've been discussing here will crop up in xmlmd:foo work.

I'd also like to know what, if anything, your expectations for the resource
described by xmlmd:foo are.

Addressing these issues seems like an important part of any 'next step'
toward closing this discussion - I'm really hoping that this plan doesn't
lead us back into the same thicket.
