None of those points looks very familiar to me, and they certainly
have not come up much in discussions.  I hear two main arguments for
HTML Namespaces:

1. To allow processors to distinguish non-HTML markup in HTML
   documents (text/html); and

2. To allow processors to distinguish HTML markup in general XML
   documents (text/xml).

I care most about (2), but others care more about (1).  They both boil 
down to the ability to make an HTML/not-HTML distinction easily.

All the best,
