Surely you wouldn't place something in the recommendation which is known to
contradict the XSchema WG decisions? Concretely, as long as the XSchema WG
keeps the "namespace == schema" rule, I don't see how you can decide to use
just one namespace for XHTML (much as I would like you to) - unless you are
betting they'll change this rule in the future.
