Do namespaces address all use cases well

Interesting idea. This is likely something
that has to be addressed in an Xml track. I am not sure that HTML-5 is
even an Xml track?
For a number of use cases I have seen
namespaces work. They are integrated in most Xml processors.
So they are there already for free.
But how well they address all use cases I
do not know. I would be interested to hear about use cases where Xml namespaces
fail and rough sketches of better technologies.

Working Group won't be renewed?
supposed to be an extensibility workshop in September at one of the F2Fs where
namespaces in general will be hashed out - I plan to be monitoring that one
carefully, as I suspect that there will be a move to "fix" namespaces
in a way that will have long term negative repercussions for the XML community.
Let's approach this
positively. XML namespaces are a pretty awful piece of design. Perhaps
this is an opportunity to revisit the requirement and do something a bit more
