By the way, do you think that an element of one namespace should 
be able to inherit attributes from another element of a different 
namespace?  If we would like to forbid such inheritance, we can simply 
say "Inheritance stops when namespaces switch"  or explicitly 
say "an element whose namespace is different from that of its immediate superior 
must explicitly specify xml:space and xml:lang".
