ISSUE-48: Adding terms to a namespace

nameSpaceState-48

Adding terms to a namespace

State:
CLOSED
Product:
Raised by:
Tim Berners-Lee
Opened on:
2005-02-09
Description:
The question is about the identity of a namespace, in particular, the xml: namespace. One perspective is that the xml: namespace consists of xml:space, xml:lang, and xml:base (and no other names) because there was a point in time in which those where the only three names from that namespace that had a defined meaning. Another perspective is that the xml: namespace consists of all possible local names and that only a finite (but flexible) number of them are defined at any given point in time.

Dan Connolly note "how to represent "Disposition of Names in an XML Namespace" in new W3C web site design?" (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/tag/2009Apr/0059.html) -- "our WD that has gone (much) more than 3 months without an update."

Norm Walsh replies (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/tag/2009Apr/0061.html): I'm inclined to think this one is important enough that we don't want it to slip under the waves. I'd prefer 1 or 2 over 0.
