Re: [xml-dev] XHTML 2 Working Group won't be renewed?

Two things that stand out for me to make them simpler:

- dont allow changing the default namespace (so no xmlns="").  An
unprefixed element is always in no namespace.

- I would allow the use of the namespace directly, eg
<com.mycomp:elem> instead of forcing the definition of a prefix
<m:elem xmlns="com.mycomp">
