   RE: RE: [xml-dev] WD for Namespaces 1.1

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

It depends on the deal.

Some XML documents don't need namespaces 
even with null values in the systems that 
provide them.   This

<myDoc myValues="myValues" />

does not have a namespace until an XML 
processor adds one.  Namespaces are systemic 
properties, not XML content.

What is the value of adding namespaces to the core 
unless every system layer above it depends on them?

Ah, but what is value?
