I think that's a weak comparison at best, especially from the
perspective (which monasticxml.org takes explicitly) that attributes are
meta-markup, adding extra information about the nature of elements
rather than being their children in any sense.

In any event, the namespace status of child elements is clearly known,
at least until W3C XML Schema's unqualified child elements poisons the
context situation further.
