Not at all -- the thing to remember, though, is that the first
generation of XML tools is just now working its way towards (or into)
the channels, and that these are based on XML 1.0.  For at least a
year, it may be necessary to use these tools to create and process
documents that use namespaces.

For personal use, of course, I can write whatever I need in Java or
Perl in a couple of hours, and can many XML-Dev'ers -- our software
development cycle is measured in hours and days rather than months and
years.  It's the people who need shrink-wrapped XML software that will
have the problem.

All the best,
