[Q] How should SAX support Namespaces?

I have just been looking at XML4J (not the one announced today - the
previous one) and note that it has support for namespaces of the 1998-05
variety and also supports SAX. It is worth looking at - overall XML4J is an
impressive piece of work to my untutored eye. It raises the more general
suggestion that we could benefit from collating our current namespaces
experience and see what approaches have been used so far. (This will be
useful preparation for the next ns draft.)

For example, I have been recently hacking JUMBO to support XML-Data-like
primitives (e.g. float) including a primitive editor/entry system. I shall
post the code shortly - I just need to try to hack in a new idea about
inheritance that kept me awake last night. Other examples of
WD-names-199805 systems which are (even partially) implemented could be
valuable, including documents and DTDs.
