Nit picking, our URI is opaque not hierarchical so there is no //
after the colon 8-)

I disagree that we should force any rules on the URI.  The antlib URI
space is used to auto-locate descriptors only.  If the only goal is
that we can have XML content that doesn't get parsed by Ant, we should
rather ignore namespaces that are not typedefed.
