Thanks for pointing this out.

1. According to the oai-identifier spec at
http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/2.0/guidelines-oai-identifier.htm , the
namespace should NOT have a trailing '/' .

We will update the example(s) in the protocol document accordingly.

2. I expect Hussein Suleman to provide up-to-date info re the Explorer.
