I strongly agree.

Just a minor question to clarify in my mind that this is the
best URI to use --- and that www.openmath.org remain sensibly
organized as a web site, as well :

If anything were eventually needed at that URI, what would it be?
How are later versions coped with?  Why /OpenMath ? (vs. /DTD 
vs. /Namespace, or whatever) Or is this naming already conventional?

I think this is the right thing to do.
