That makes _at least_ two of us ... ;-)

With both Tim and Andrew posting on this thread ... perhaps
one of them could provide some of the use cases that were
proposed where 

	<foo:a foo:href="bar">
	<foo:a href="bar">

should NOT be equivalent?  Lacking such use cases, I'm sure
Don and I aren't the only ones who will forever remain puzzled.

I noticed the latest version of the DOM L2 spec had to have a
specific warning on this issue, which suggests something.
