Re: [xml-dev] targetNamespace and default namespace

This bug report says:

However, plugin.xml documents do not place elements in any namespace at all. This should be 

targetNamespace="" 

or just omit the attribute entirely.

But, the XML Schema spec says:

Since the empty string is not a legal namespace name, supplying an empty string for targetNamespace is incoherent, and is not the same as not specifying it at all. The appropriate form of schema document corresponding to a ¬∑schema¬∑ whose components have no {target namespace} is one which has no targetNamespace attribute specified at all.

Respectfully,
Webb

I seem to remember from way back a lot of discussion about how you would be
able to use elements from another namespace or schema, if they weren't
qualified somehow.  That might have been mostly about inserting XML
fragments from one document into another, I don't remember too clearly.  It
would have lead to not wanting to default namespaces to that of the parent
element.

omeone, I think, had the bright idea that if a container element is
in a namespace

<svg:svg xmlns:svg="http://svg.com/">

</svg:svg>

then there is no good reason why its children need to be in a
namespace: like attributes, they are scoped by the container. The
idea didn't catch on, but the schema spec was written in the belief
that this was the way forwards.
