Namespace entity names Re: [xml-dev] UTF-8+names

I don't think that is a flaw. I repeat my question, which was not
answered yet: Why are only elements and attributes subject to a
namespace definition, but not entities?

Has this been discussed while
preparing the Namespaces REC, and was it decided not to go this way for
any good reason? Pointers to mail archives are welcome.

The same question could apply to other names; IDs, enumerations and notations.
But the fewer nested definitions the better.

Actually, providing a prefix on entity reference is quite useful; we allow typing in
&isolat1:uuml; to produce ü for example, so that only the
names just in the particular entity set come up on the selection list.
