RFC 5022, "Media Server Control Markup Language (MSCML) and Protocol", September 2007


Errata ID: 1237
Status: Rejected

Section 6.1.1 says:

URL       and        URLs

It should say:

URI       and        URIs


Throughout Section 6.1.1. ff., the RFC should better use
IETF standard terminology as codified in STD 66, RFC 3986.

In particular, the attribute name "baseurl" is a misnomer
and should better have been named "baseuri" (bottom of page 24).
Author comment: Sounds editorial to me. If you want to change it everywhere, go for it. Changing baseurl to baseuri would change the protocol. Since it really is a seven-character string that seems to mean something, no harm in leaving it as is.
