Well, as author of NamespaceFilter (which now bites the dust), I suppose
I count as a namespace implementor. I foresee no difficulties in
rewriting my code to meet the new draft (and at the same time adding
general support for inherited attributes, which I had wanted to do
as a ParserFilter anyway). The new version will be less efficient,
since every startElement event will have to have its attributes
searched to see if a new xmlns:* attribute appears.
I would point out that people who use default or FIXED values of
xmlns:* attributes would be well advised to put them in the
internal subset, since non-validating parsers may not see them

IBTWSH is non-namespace rather than single-namespace.
