The Peace Process: DOM and namespaces...

DOM Level 2 is discussing namespace support now. If you have opinions on
how it ought to operate, you might want to send them to the public DOM
mailing list (which hasn't gotten a lot of traffic since Level 1 came out).

The problem with living on the bleeding edge is that we're all playing
catch-up with each other, and there's too much happening for everyone to
stay perfectly in synch...

(Personally, I'm of the community that's underimpressed with namespaces as
they wound up being defined; I think they fall short of what was needed.
But they're what we've got, and we have to either live with them or ignore
