Looking through some of the archives it looks like Elliotte Rusty Harold was
pushing the same thing but Xerces was against it. (Back in November) [1].
Also I went through and tested the four major SAX parsers and none of them
currently support xmlns-uris.

As an aside, the sax-devel lists seem to hate me... I have subscribed a
dozen times and can't post or receive the emails. The newsgroup that you
referred to is really great!
