#1 was originally Namespaces, Namespaces, Namespaces, but I thought maybe
that was a little harsh.  But maybe not!

Er, uh, yeah.  That's a fine list.  I was thinking a little more in terms
of using XML than what went in the spec (otherwise I'd include notations
and unparsed entities), but that's got lots.

'data lockout' to keep up with Rick Jelliffe, but we're off to a fine start!
