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

So, if you had the two documents:

<book foo:author="John" xmlns:foo="http://example.com/book"/>


<book bar:author="John" xmlns:bar="http://example.com/book"/>

are they considered the same?

What part does the MicroXML parser play in this interpretation, and what 
part the application?
