I asked this same question some months back.
It should be in the archives somewhere. Tim
Bray and others responded. In one case it comes down
to whether or not mapping to associative array
names (eg, the obj.thang) will
conflict. Otherwise, it is an acceptable practice
because as always
XML Doesn't Care.

Subject: Q: Tag naming convention
I have generally tried to avoid the use of tagnames like <first.name>,
in my limited experience, the middle tier maps object attributes to tag
and having a period in the name messes everything up.
The other day I ran across a book in use locally that uses LOTS of element
in this fashion.
I was wondering if this practice has anything to recommend it. If not,
it's use be discouraged?
