Because an e-commerce company catering strictly to Chinese consumers
may decide later to go global.  If you were the XML consultant hired
to advise the company, would you tell them they can if they want to?

My understanding is that most software engineers, no matter where they
are, can read English well enough to distinguish and infer enough
meaning from English element types to use them.  In Korea, for example,
English is everywhere and most Koreans can recognize the words even if
they can't pronounce them.  Of course, we are talking about simple or
well-known words like office, automation, web, starcraft, order, name;
not words like pedantic.
