Why not PIs for namespace declarations?

Clark Evans asks whether there is ongoing work to introduce a new form of
Processing Instruction.  I am not aware of any such work, but perhaps others

In any case, I am not attempting to debate the merits of the namespaces
design, but to achieve a precondition of reasonable debate, namely an
understanding of what the specification actually does and does not say.

I also recommend reading some some other posings on this subject,
particularly those of Tim Bray, Jon Bosak and David Megginson.

Best wishes,
Andrew Layman
