Recently I had to switch back from code running with Saxon 8.3 to Saxon 8.2

To do so I had to revert to the older xdt namespace. It proved almost
impossible to find it on the Web!

I would appeal to the various W3C  WGs to record in a central location
all namespace URIs used in their "temporary" namespaces such as xdt.

The admirable tricks recommended by Michael Kay for finding this
information in the source code of Saxon 8.x clearly show how difficult
the W3C groups have made it for a programmer to use the reference
implementations of the drafts.
