The namespace method we got from ISO 15926-4 (and -6) and put in ISO 15926-8 carries version information.

Example (for dm:):
Code:
http://standards.iso.org/iso/ts/15926/-8/ed-1/tech/reference-data/data-model#ClassOfActivity


This thread is about discussing the cons and pros of this type of namespace.

Given some facts (but we can discuss in this thread to add more):
  • A namespace does not need to be resolvable (produce a page when a browser points at it). We have technical solutions for relating a namespace to an endpoint address.
  • Metadata like version information can be expressed semantically, e.g. with the ClassOfClass relationship.

Without version information the example would look like this:
Code:
http://standards.iso.org/iso/15926/-8/tech/reference-data/data-model#ClassOfActivity

I voted no because for me there is another reason: versions in name spaces would cause differences in namespaces where there should not exist a difference.

Sorry for the "no vote". I could not undo the vote I made in my admin ident, so made it no vote.
