I should love to see that as well.

namespace URIs are not meant to be resolved.  They are just required
to be unique identifiers for a particular XML grammar.  It is highly
unlikely someone else would use that URI :)

2.  Could someone comment on the differences in svg files used by
and exported by dia versus the W3C draft?  I would like to try building
a set of custom shapes but would like to build/validate them against a
or schema in XML-spy to make sure they are kosher.  Articles elsewhere
the archive seem to imply that dia accepts a subset of svg, but what
subset?  (Again, I apologize if this has been answered.  Perhaps it
is a candidate for the FAQ or the documentation.)

It's not formally defined, but it's described in the doc subdirectory of
the sources.

There is a dtd for shape files in the doc/ directory as well (shape.dtd).
I haven't tested it much, but it gives a formal specification of what dia
supports.  The doc/custom-shapes file gives more detailed documentation
about writing shape files.
