Re: [xml-dev] Six Reasons Not to use XML Attributes

Some of the xml attributes become impossible: xml:space, xmlns (some would 
consider that a good thing:); xml:id becomes more complex, as in 
node()[./id='...myid...'] which is also a bit more expensive and less 
friendly for streaming. Also specifying the constraint that ID's are 
unique within a document becomes harder to do.  And once you do that, you 
are headed down the path of taking away *more* element names from general 
use, which XML doesn't do now.
