RE: [Issue 701] - Subversion properties live in an XML namespace called "svn:"

Hi,

I just read a thread on the mailing list that seems to be the one you are
referring to.

The main problem (slightly unrelated) I see there is that the claim is made
that WebDAV properties are identified by URIs. This is *not* the case.
WebDAV properties are identified by QName (qualified name), which is a pair
of a URI reference and an XML name.

The current situation (for which I raised the bug report) simply is that the
XML content sent by subversion isn't stricly NS-wellformed XML. This could
be avoided by mapping "svn:" to something else when present in XML content,
or to use something else in the first place.

It escapes me why Subversion tries to define a URI scheme just for the
purpose identifying it's "own" properties (I have only looked at Subversion
from a WebDAV p.o.v., so I may be missing something). I don't see how the
IETF would register a new URI scheme for this purpose (would it be tried).
