Title: RE: [xml-dev] A plea for Sanity

One of the arguments being, I guess, that if all XML apps were namespace compliant, it shouldn't matter what the output prefix was - it's just a placeholder, isn't it?

The real complexity starts to show up in applications which
themselves need to keep track of the namespace environment
(e.g., XSLT).  This is usually required for applications that
need to reserialize an Infoset as XML and wish to retain
the original namespace prefixes on output.  (It gets hairier
for markup vocabularies that include QNames in content, but that's
a different issue.)
