I'm not an XML expert, but I thought that to ensure uniqueness, XML
namespaces were supposed to be managed hierarchically, like package
names in Java. In any case there needs to be some convention to avoid
having 3rd party extensions collide with namespaces that are part of the
Jabber standard protocol. This is what I assume the "jabber:" prefix is
Since we can't use that with public XML storage, I think we should use
some other top level name that will be reserved for the Jabber standard
protocol. Just "storage" seems overly vague to me. Maybe "jabberstorage"?
