Which is inconsistent with the mx namespace but I'll assume that's for historic reasons.

If we were thinking of adding new apache namespace should we keep the distinction between
2006 and 2009? I'd prefer to drop the year from the URI if we can.

Sure but it a nice to have I think and also in common usage.  The W3C maps namespace URIs
to real URLs (eg Perhaps we should follow a similar format
as described here (and elsewhere)?

But I like the idea as if a user of the SDK goes to that link it take them to the Apache Flex
