You certainly could put it above attribute defaulting if you liked; part of
what I'm proposing is putting that kind of control in the hands of the
application developer rather than the parser author.  Personally, I use
attribute defaults for most of my namespace declarations, but your
situation may definitely vary.

Time will certainly tell.  Hopefully, it will be merciful.
