Yes, there's an old comment in Verifier.checkNamespaceURI() that it
needs to be brought in line with RFC 2396.  I added a note about it in
TODO so that people looking for something to do can keep this in mind.

In regard to the extra new line you saw, what's the full scoop?  I'm
wondering if the proper JDOM behavior is to throw a verifier exception,
or to automatically handle URIs with surrounding whitespace?
