It could coexist. Registered prefixes could be handled as colonized names
by parser with namespace awareness turned off. There would have to be some
convention to denote a registered prefix, and there has to be a well-known
server (though it doesn't necessarily have to be accessed during parsing).
Industry adoption is another matter. The phrase "not in my lifetime"
springs to mind. Still, I had to spout.
