It requires a version-up of XML.  And it not SGML-compatible,
without a bit of liason.

Since it doesn't change the syntax, nor rules of XML 1.0, this _could_ be
done perhaps as an update to XMLNS, but without modifying XML 1.0.


Define "Namespace Valid" as distinct from "Valid" just as XML Schema defines
"Schema Valid" without changing XML 1.0

That is to say, a proper "non validating parser" would be enabled to signal
"namespace validity", (since DTDs still deal with entities etc, I am not
sure this could be defined as a property of the 'infoset' but rather the XML

I don't see a problem, what am I missing?
