Yeah, I wasn't either yesterday.  Apologies to everyone here for being
nasty.  Everyone in the XML activity takes the opinions expressed here
very seriously.  

I gotta say, though, the XML spec now feels to me like a ramshackle 
compromise that only just barely works, while namespaces do one simple 
thing and nail it down tight as a drum.   Here's how bad it is; I'm
working on an Annotated namespaces, just like annotated XML - and I'm
having serious difficulty figuring out what to write. -Tim
