Well, we have years of very positive experience with namespaces in
programming languages like Java and Perl.  It's possible that our
experience in programming languages doesn't apply to XML, but I'd like
to hear a clear argument of why it doesn't.  

As I mentioned in a previous posting, I'd hate to have to write Perl
modules without packages.

All the best,
