It starts to be a problem when one has to
move bare XML around and the framework is
overzealously stuffing declarations into
the syntax. Some users of XML should be
SGML users instead. One case is network
messaging that interfaces to RF systems
where size matters a lot (RF is comparable
to 9600-14.4 systems). Sometimes it is
simply a matter of getting them to understand
what XSLT is doing to "help" and why copy-of
is a bad idea for their particular code even
if it looks like tight code. Until they
really understand what the infoset is for
XSLT, they stumble.
Otherwise, from my perspective, the XML-SW
is a very sensible place to start.

We could do that.
As for me, I'll stay out of the debate, since
I don't think there's anything worth discussing:
XML-SW is right on the mark.

My feeling is, as long as we're stuck with XML Namespaces
to begin with, XML-SW is as good a place as any to put them.
