I just sat in on a demo that did exactly that and
not only was not namespace aware, was namespace-don't-care:
Remember, they don't have to use other XML W3C specs to
get a lot of work done, and in fact, may not want to
use those other codebases (say plugins).
So the working assumption has a lot to do with use
of "other W3C specifications".
From: Tom Bradford [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]
I don't think it's a blanket statement at all. Any application that
utilizes any specification developed by the W3C over the past few years,
other than XML 1.0 itself, must, even if you don't care, be
namespace-aware. This is what I mean by 'all the stuff that you might
want to *do* with or to a document'. If an application developer can
live happily only having to parse and serialize non-namespaced data,
then they should consider themselves lucky.
