By the way, do you think that an element of one namespace should
be able to inherit attributes from another element of a different
namespace? If we would like to forbid such inheritance, we can simply
say "Inheritance stops when namespaces switch" or explicitly
say "an element whose namespace is different from that of its immediate superior
must explicitly specify xml:space and xml:lang".
