Let me clarify. As per the XML namespace specification, the URI is used
only as an identifier, the XML namespace specification does not ever use the
URI in a way that resolution to a document is at all meaningful. Hence, the
fact that the URI may or may not point to a resource is completely
irrelevant as far as XML namespaces are concerned.
