Stability of this namespace URI:

It is the intent of the W3C Web Services Policy Working Group that the Web Services Policy 1.5 XML namespace URI will not change arbitrarily with each subsequent revision of the corresponding XML Schema documents as the specifications transition through Candidate Recommendation, Proposed Recommendation and Recommendation status. However, should the specifications revert to Working Draft status, and a subsequent revision, published as a WD, CR or PR draft, results in non-backwardly compatible changes from a previously published WD, CR or PR draft of the specification, the namespace URI will be changed accordingly.

Under this policy, the following are examples of backwards compatible changes that would not result in assignment of a new XML namespace URI:
