   RE: [xml-dev] thinking about "namespace pedantry"

Absolutely. James Clark got round this quite neatly in XPath 1.0, I think, by referring to the "thing that is not a namespace" as "the null namespace". We need a name for it, and we can use that phrase without having to agree on whether the thing is or is not a namespace.
