Re: [xml-dev] [ANNOUNCE] New MicroXML draft available

At the moment, element names like foo:bar are not allowed in MicroXML,
which is what I was trying to express.  The only way to give an element
a namespace is using the xmlns attribute.  Attributes are allowed to
have prefixes and are bound with xmlns:foo attributes, as in XML.

In any case, the work proposed for xml:* elements is now being done by
xml-* PIs, and MicroXML accommodates them just fine.

O beautiful for patriot's dream that sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam undimmed by human tears!
America! America!  God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control, thy liberty in law!
