Simon St. Laurent wrote "Namespace prefixes hate validation."
This is not true. There is nothing in namespaces per se that interferes
with validation. It would be more accurate to say that work remains to
better integrate DTDs and namespaces, and until that work is finished, if
one wants to write a validatable document instance using namespaces, one
must use exactly the prefixes written in the DTD.
Whether integrating namespaces more fully with DTDs should be done by
augmenting existing DTD syntax or by devising a new syntax is up to the
currently-chartered "Schemas" effort.
