> XML 1.1
> W3C Working Draft 13 December 2001
It seems a shame not to take the opportunity to bring XML Namespaces into
the main XML spec. Not that I have ever been a fan of namespaces, but since
all the other important specs like InfoSet and XPath now work only with
namespace-conformant documents, it seems rather pointless to introduce an
XML 1.1 that not only continues to allow documents that aren't namespace
conformant, but even (as far as I can see) retains the timid "please don't
misuse the colon" wording of XML 1.0 second edition.
Will any vendor really want to produce an XML 1.1 parser that handles
non-namespace-conformant documents, and if so, why?
