URNs are *global* identifiers, not local or context-dependent.
Therefore, "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:domain-1.0" should always refer to
exactly the same resource.

If you replace the EPP standard RFC's, we are forced to not use the
XSD's from the RFC's to validate the protocol. You are, in effect,
creating your own private protocol. You are, in fact, not using EPP,
but your own, however deceptively similar, protocol. This does not help
