It seems you've completely misunderstood my statements. The point is
that forcing streaming implementations to cache all attributes on an
element before being able to report the name of the start tag is a
problem with implementing the XML namespaces recommendation. This has
little to do with the edge case of a single element with 50,000
attributes or whatever. 

Not everyone repeats gossip. Some improve it.
