Re: RE: Namespace use cases
Just a quick comment on one of your points, Rick. At 2009-07-11 20:06 +1000, email@example.com wrote: >The second is the namespaces used for Qnames in element and attribute >values.

I long regret the Schematron choice of using elements for declaring namespaces and their prefixes. In every other application of XML I use the namespace axis and namespace facilities to obtain the information I need to support XPath addresses that are in attribute values, but for Schematron I have to do something different than for everything else. So now instead of looking in a single place for namespaces (the namespace axis) I now have to look in a second place (the newly-introduced Schematron elements). I've always been uncomfortable with that. I do not find it "smooth" at all. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
