A Namespace is simply a list of names and some of their attributes.


  • A namespace ensures that all of a given set of objects have unique names so that they can be easily identified.
  • Namespaces are commonly structured as hierarchies to allow reuse of names in different contexts.
  • An Entity is an Object with a name that is unique in some Namespace.
  • A Taxonomy is the simplest form of a namespace.
  • A typical Namespace can be uniquely discovered with a URL.

I am dealing with a particularly interesting challenge, wherein I don't want params that are transferred into a composed Service URL, I want some that are used in other aspects of a resulting request, like a POST body. The rub is that I have many params I would need, and don't want to start adding their generic names to the public namespace, because they are basically Service-specific white_check_mark eyes

9:00 What are we doing about Service specific params used in something other than transference to a composed URL? 9:01 I have this example right now of one possible way I was going to do this: ?messages=method:'CollectionsQuery',tags:'foo','bar',schema:'http://schema.org/MusicPlaylist' (edited) 9:01 Basically one param with multiple subelements 9:01 no standard exists for complex json value representation in params, that I am aware of 9:02 that is the best representation I could think of with the use of unencoded reserved chars

this might be worth a discussion in the ID meeting later today. It is symptomatic of any attempt to create a universal semantic and why past attempts (X12, XML) have not been successful. http://microformats.org/wiki/namespaces-considered-harmful
