Not exactly although I agree that when using
XML as The GUI, it looks the same. The namespace
should enable me to stay consistent with the
driving schema. I can get it for free using
the elementFormDefault switch, yes? Now,
if the editor is aware of the namespace,
I should be able to get it from the GUI too,
Right. That changeability thing is a bear.
At least for XML Schemas, we do have online
resources to suggest what the best practices
are. That's a good start when using XML
Schemas. How much of it relates to other
schema languages, or to just markup in general
is not something I've given much thought to.

up. Markup design is a compromise between purity and practicality, and the
balance changes over time.
