* Tim Bray
| In my recollection, the main objection was that the AF syntax for
| namespacing on attributes was seen as really unattractive.
And, truth be told, it *is* really unattractive. In fact, it's both
the least attractive and least important aspect of AFs. If AFs were to
be adopted by the W3C the syntax ought to be changed.
| If we had wanted to do namespaces on just elements, not attributes,
| I'm pretty sure we would have ended up with AFs or equivalent.
This I don't follow. How would you have gotten the processing
semantics and resulting naming freedom by taking that approach?
