I agree with Gavin on this.
Common XML  started with a core - one I now suspect may be too big,
largely because of namespaces - and then described layers beyond that
That might be a good operation to perform on Len's favored XML-SW early
on; I suspect doing that might well lead to the 'unbundling' of
namespaces, xml:xyz, and the infoset.
