Definitely. I have just given it a short glance, but I don't think that 
any mechanism has been defined to let applications test which version of 
namespaces they are dealing with.

Being able to "undeclare" is fine but unless I am mistaken, this means 
that documents which were previously invalid per namespaces in XML 1.0 
will suddenly be valid with a behavior specified in namespaces in XML 1.1.

Vice versa, some documents which will be written for ns 1.1 will be 
invalid for ns 1.0 without any fallback mechanism or any way for the 
parser to adapt its behavior.

Makes me feel *very* uncomfortable!

See you in Barcelona.
