The namespaces rec hardwires the prefix "xml:" to the namespace name
http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace - until recently, if you dereferenced
that URL, you got a nice helpful human-readable note saying "this namespace
is for XML, go check out http://www.w3.org/XML and <a couple of other useful
pointers which I forget>".

Today, I went and looked at it, and there is now some sort of XML schema 
fragment there which is unreadable in MSIE5 because of an IE5 bug, and 
unreadable in the NS6 beta because there's no stylesheet.  Its function 
seems to be limited to providing declarations for xml:lang and xml:space.

I'm wondering if this is a step forward. -Tim
