What's weird about that (other than the http:// ...and all the 
baggage that drags along with it)?  I thought terseness was not a 
consideration for XML?  

There was a long, long sml-dev thread on this horrid subject, and the 
conclusion (as I recall) that simply putting the full domain 
qualifier in the markup vocabulary was the cleanest solution for 
everyone concerned (except the typist).
