Then why do we need a requirements document for Namespaces 1.1 per se?

Is there a good argument why Namespaces-1.1 *shouldn't* be rolled
into the XML-1.1 req/draft?  So what if XML-1.1 is a few pages
larger; the post-hoc addition of Namespaces to XML has caused a
lot of problems over the years.  

Removing an external requirement/dependency should be a *good* thing here.
