* Tim Bray
| 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.

* Lars Marius Garshol
| This I don't follow. How would you have gotten the processing
| semantics and resulting naming freedom by taking that approach?

* Tim Bray
| Instead of <html:img xmlns:html="http://www.w3.org/1999/html4/"; we
| would have <img xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/html4/";  

But you still have to call it 'img', don't you? There's no way you
could call it 'bilde' or 'figure', or did I miss something?
| Kind of nice I think.

With fixed attributes, yes. Without, absolutely not.
