But that's a point. All "W3C" technologies use
them. Is XML W3C-only? If we put namespaces in
the core, the du jure spec says any implementation
has to support them. Why do it? All one has
to do is what is done now; point a spec that needs
them toward the namespace rec. It's easy, it's clear,
and the option to try something else is preserved
or to do away with it altogether when one doesn't

Maybe I wasn't clear enough. What I meant is that all W3C XML
technologies except the XML 1.0 spec itself use namespaces. (Please
