I won't reply in detail, since we might be in danger of getting off-topic.
I do not know what the WG's thinking is on AFs, but I should not be
surprised to see them formally introduced into XML at some stage. At
present JUMBO uses namespaces to tackle the colonised element names - the
result is probably fairly similar in practice.  If the WG suggests that AFs
should be part of the XML effort I'll have to learn how to hack a processor

Anyway I am glad I can get rid of the DOCTYPE.
