So that explains the current complicated mess
that is XML+Namespaces?
Dare to do less. Claim more. Change the names later.
I'm glad the W3C doesn't spec airliners.

Hmm, my memory seems to tell me that the first wave of Ada
compilers were quite a bit more robust and reliable than the first
few releases of Java. On the other hand, they didn't include a
virtual machine. On another hand, my mental image of Java 1.0 is
as of a fairly stripped down language with not a lot of fat, while
Ada suffered from severe complete-ism from day one.
Another victory for those who dared to do less. -Tim
