Indeed, at Longbow Games we have our own HTML-inspired schema that 
doesn't currently use namespaces, so we'd have to find-and-replace those 

If we're at all typical, though, that would be the least of our worries. 
  On the few instances I've had to copy HTML into our format, it's much 
more annoying to fix up the tags where our format differs (which usually 
means adding attributes to cover our lack of CSS).  By contrast, doing 
an s/w3\.xhtml//g is a trifling matter.

Alternately, I suppose we could bind w3.xhtml to the empty namespace, 
but then I wouldn't be able to sleep with myself at night.
