I was hoping that would be elaboration enough. <g>

Okay, to be more explicit, would you really want to type (or read) something


in front of each and every element and attribute name in a hypothetical Navy
XML document? I wouldn't, although I do the equivalent in Java often enough.

I think the pertinent question is: are there enough short string sequences
for all namespace identifiers, now and in the future, that aren't so
abstract to be illegible?  In other words, could one be stuck for a
meaningful short string ns ID because all the ones they wanted to use are in
use by others?

Thanks for being persistent, anyway. Good questions, all.
