I think you're missing something. Forcing parser writers to implement
namespaces is not the same as forcing document authors to use them. The
only people who would be hurt by requiring namespace support in XML 1.1
are those who (against the advice of the XML 1.0 spec) use colons in
element type and attribute names. I'm curious if anybody actually does
this.
