Whenever I looked into XSLT stylesheets with namespace declarations I see
ALWAYS a scheme like


or more general


This is somehow confusing because the namespace has nothing to do with a WWW Hyperlinks/URLs.
>From my point fo view it is just a tag or label which could be named 


as well
Or is there somewhere a specs which requires a "http...." declaration

What is the reason why all the coders use "http...." URL like namespace names ?
