It means that the WG could declare victory without specific namespace
support if it wanted to.  XML 1.0 is the bottom layer (a la IP), and
Namespaces form a higher layer (a la TCP), and the Infoset could end
up working at either level; what will actually come out is yet to be
decided, and the WG's current thinking on the subject is unfortunately
subject to the W3C's member confidentiality rules.

All the best,
