RE: XML processor behavior with unused NS declarations
At what point does it become reasonable to expect the specification to be changed/improved/evolved/complicated to describe expectations in non-normative sections? Isn't that where the appellation of XML as a specification becomes XML as a standard? After all, it isn't a private wine. len From: C. M. Sperberg-McQueen [mailto:email@example.com] Fortunately, the marketplace is by and large less forgiving on this subject than the specs. For the reasons mentioned by Ken Holman, and possibly just because it's easier to do it that way, all the widely used processors I know anything about will retain namespace nodes in the cases you describe.
