RE: [xml-dev] "Introducing MicroXML, Part 1: Explore the basicprinciples of MicroXML"

I'm not sure what the rule of least power would say about that, but from the KISS perspective, those
seven attributes come from HTML, effectively, and if they were "burned into" XML, it would go a long way
towards supporting the uniform interface in all implementations.

For example namespaces capture the semantics the namespace designer says.  Hypermedia affordances need to be simple, and reliable, hence should come with the language, because they are designed to support its #1 goal.

For example, some people
might like to put a URI template in an href, but that would not be technically correct because it should only contain
a valid URI.  Hence tref, which although does not come from HTML, might be nice for XML to put out there, since
we have a newly created RFC for URI templates.

re: "Reliable hypermedia affordances"

I do think it would be nice to have a MicroXLink (with even more emphasis on the "micro") but whether that should be in the core of MicroXML? Hard to say. How about something like xml:href or uxml:href in the core standard, and then a separate layer with e.g. uxml:rel and such.
