It's true, when I refer to "XML" I really do mean XML 1.0 + XML
Namespaces, and not just XML without namespaces.

But then, so does *everyone* else, and it's absolutely ridiculous to
suggest otherwise.

Funny.  I think results in this particular thread indicate that you might have that "ridiculous" bit backwards.

Nevertheless, I'm leaving off that particular debate.  It's not really important, and I don't think it pragmatically affects the MicroXML proposal.
