Re: [xml-dev] A proposal for application level XML 'namespaces'

hmm well you do know it's in the 'mysc' namespace, whereas in the
latter you can't be sure if its in no namespace.  And also with the
latter, if you pasted that into another document it would take on any
existing default namespace change.

If the prefix-as-the-namespace caught on, you could envisage parsers
falling back to using the prefix as the namespace where there is no
existing mapping, making the xmlns optional.
