That's the problem with adding complexity to, well, anything -- there are 
always people who will rush to use the complex parts, just because they can.

The answer, folks, is (c): when (and only when) Namespace declarations are 
being reporting as attributes, the "xmlns" attribute will have both a local 
part of "xmlns" *and* a Namespace URI.

Now, we need to resolve what features are actually supposed to be documented 
in package.html (a patch would be welcome), check the other support files 
for required updates, freeze, take a short testing period, and release.

All the best,
