    Donald, I believe that the definition of this task and its name do
not match. I think it is a terminology problem. The part of the LSID
that is related to DNS is the *authority identification*. The
*namespace* isn't related to DNS. here's the LSID syntax to illustrate:

    So, this group will discuss authority ids or namespaces (or both)?
Which should we fix, the page name or the description?

    I think I have already mixed this up in a previous post to Kevin
Richards. Sorry about that.
