   RE: [xml-dev] WD for Namespaces 1.1

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

What is the problem with keeping them in a separate 
spec?  What is the advantage of rolling them in?
Those who want them supported do; those who don't 
aren't bothered by them.

Namespaces are a system feature.  They shouldn't 
be in the core any more than XML Schema support 
shouldn't be in the core and XSLT shouldn't be 
in the core.  They are framework components.

What needs to be fixed as Mike points out are 
the other specifications that all treat the 
infoset differently.  That is the mess.

I haven't seen any indication that DTDs would be removed from the XML 1.1 spec,
have you? Assuming they remain, any parser that didn't support them wouldn't be
an XML parser. Perhaps you mean that most XML 1.1 parsers would be
non-validating? I suppose that's possible, but it doesn't sound likely, or like
a good reason not to roll namespeces into the XML 1.1 spec.
