   RE: [xml-dev] more QName madness

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hmmm. And I though my PUNTed documents were unacceptably ugly. 

Couldn't we just create a mechanism whereby conflicting names in a document
(composed from different sources) are temporarily uniqueified with a
transient qualifier? I mean, do we really need to make sure that names are
_globally_ unique? Why can't we just enforce uniqueness within a processing
context through a common syntactic construct? 

Just askin'.
