Re: WD for Namespaces 1.1
This missed the list the first time. Including namespace support means tracking in scope namespace declarations. This means that you must implement a way to track the namespace declarations w.r.t to context. Remove namespaces and may not be necessary (for example you could have an application act on elements without needing context-- eliminating the need for stack/tracking information). There are a lot of reasons not to want it. That being said the XML Rec makes a distinction between valid and well-formedness. It could add another case for Namespace-valid. If namespaces get added into the XML Rec, I think there needs to be an allowable way to turn it off. A separation of namespace validity and well-formedness (and even validity?) seems necessary. If you have deeply nested documents, tracking the namespace scoping for a document which "doesn't use namespaces" seems wasteful.
