> I realize this would have HUGE impact on legacy XML,
> Impact on what?
Well, for one we're talking about eliminating the need for namespace
declarations. Just about everything would break, at least if you hope to
separate local name from namespace ID, or have documents that mix this
proposed scheme with existing Namespaces in XML stuff. Otherwise, you're
left with swallowing the whole name, id and all, atomically, in
non-namespaced documents only, and separating them using your own parser.
The other option is to define a different id:localName separator. There
ain't that many Name chars to choose from, at least in the low-order,
although some smarty-pants may come by and correct me if I'm wrong.
