	The point of what I said about namespaces was that XML data islands
are non-standard, and IE only. What would be better (IMHO) than the ugly
non-standard bastardised HTML tag addition of Data islands would be a way of
accessing an individual namespace embedded within an xhtml document, so
instead of having:

	Some xml below:
	<xml id="myisland">

	You would have:

	Some namespace scoped XML below:

	See what I mean?

	And then have some standardised (DOM) mechanism of accessing that
data. I know I've just opened up a huge kettle of fish here, so I'm going to
stand back as the worms spill out :)
