Um, namespace-aware parsers have no problem parsing markup without
namespaces.  :-) 

I'm talking about mandating their inclusion in the next version of
the core XML recommendation, not requiring their usage in XML
version N.  Starting from a foundation where namespaces are known
to always exist makes it easier to write specifications and use
any random XML parser for any random use.
