That's what it is.

Lots of people have good solid practical uses for namespaces.  Anyone who
thinks that HTML can go forward standing alone in glorious isolation and
never being mixed with another tag vocabulary Just Doesn't Get It.

So XHTML needs a namespace, and the HTML WG is the correct group to assign 
it.  Whether they want to do it as part of the XHTML 1.0 spec or simply as
a 3-line W3C recommendation published separately makes little 
difference. -Tim
