RE: [xml-dev] Static resolution of names is preferred over dynamicresolution of names

Hi all,

I think I eventually have to ask...

What's the matter?

I have been very happily using namespaces and prefixes with xml and rdf/xml for years. I always saw only advantages in it and no hindrances.

I have also followed with interest the work done to carry this information in JSON (which need came late but eventually surfaced).

So, again, what's the problem if there is one.

As for the statement about namespaces being the result of some political process, then it proves that politics can helps, sometimes :--)

To enable RDF-XML, which needed to happen immediately to enable the
Semantic Web, which would either lead to Skynet or to us buying pants on
the Internet, I forget which.
