BTW, it's a nice idea. Most probably next release of OCamlNS will
deprecate my style of namespaces (Org.Ocaml.[...]) and let namespace
be "proto://..." and I'll develop ocamlnsc and ocamlnsopt that will
use namespace URLs to get the modules (even via http) and pass them
to ocamlc|ocamlopt (in way like ocamlfind). I don't know whether this
feature is demanded by ocaml users community, but for me it looks
very attractive and probably I'll use it my project. 

In my thoughts I think that URL should point to a kinda textual
module description (with dependencies and so on).
