   RE: [xml-dev] WD for Namespaces 1.1

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

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 
need it.

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
correct me if I'm wrong.) Just because you don't use namespaces doesn't
mean they aren't there.
