This is one of those issues where you have all sorts of options and all sorts of situations under which the options are more or less appopriate. I'd remind people of Tom Bradford's "Clean Namespaces" proposal http://www.tbradford.org/clean-namespaces.txt which more or less reflects the old sml-dev discussion. Sometimes DOM Level 1 or DTD compatibility is more important, and something like Clean Namespaces makes sense. Other times, terseness and human readibility is more important, and the full power of the Namespaces Rec and DOM Level 2 makes sense. And then there are the times when you need to use DTDs and namespaces and DOM and XPath and Canonical XML, and a career move into a less stressful occupation, such as a Middle East peace negotiator or an Enron spokesperson, makes the most sense :~)
