I'm convinced that a high proportion of the XML docs flowing around 
the web are going to have namespace apparatus in them, thus if I
were building a parsing system I'd build that right in at a low level.

I'd be surprised if the extra cost of doing namespace processing were
significant or in fact noticeable.  -Tim
