   RE: [xml-dev] Registered Namespace prefixes

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


I'll have to dissect this one piece by piece:

That's a feature that is neither absolutely necessary, and even if desirable
it would have no impact on document processing.

That's an assumption.  Again, it's not necessary for document processing.

So one-to-one is the same as many-to-one?   I don't see a need for a
separate registry for each entry.
