Namespace URI in feeds is broken

There is a URI reference to http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/slash/ which is triggering a 404 in a link checker being used on our website. It is trivial but is something simple which could be fixed.

wp-includes/feed-rss2.php is the file

xmlns:slash="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/slash/" is the line

This looks like this could be the right URI... could not find the right URI on purl.org easily http://web.resource.org/rss/1.0/modules/slash/

The line you are referring to is an XML Namespace declaration, and therefore cannot be changed. In fact, XML Namespace declaration does not have to point to existing URL - it have to be unique, and always the same since it is published for first time.
