The points you raise were addressed during the discussion leading up to the
current paper.  Briefly, the namespaces facility does not address how
"global" attributes are to be declared. It says merely that if a single
attribute is used in two different element types, it may use namespace
qualification to represent that it is in fact the same attribute, not two
attributes with equivocal names.

Nor does the namespace facility express an opinion on when such use is
reasonable. As you note, the XML-Link proposal has found it useful.  

	I hope this summary is useful.
