Section 7 states "The current draft includes providing support for 
the default namespace in the XPointer namespace binding context. This 
can be removed, but needs consideration."

It's not clear what you mean here. Section 7 is the only place I see 
the default namespace mentioned or used.

Furthermore, the default namespace does not apply to XPath 1.0 
expressions; e.g. //name selects name elements in no namespace, not 
name elements in the default namespace. So even if you can include 
the default namespace, it probably won't have any effect.
