Not qualifying child elements is a bad practice; as Tim Bray pointed out, it leads to collisions when you start mixing elements from different namespaces. Not qualifying attributes is a neutral practice. It appears to have no negative side effects (RDF excepted). Qualifying unqualified child elements and attributes is a dubious practice. It can lead to collisions even within a namespace. Instead of trying to impose a technical solution, better to write the author of any schema that uses unqualified child elements an email and explain that they are not writing a portable schema. Bad design is a human problem and is better solved by humans. -- Ron Bourret Author, XML Namespaces FAQ
