To do HTML5 polyglot (one of James's explicit intentions), you need SVG, and to do SVG you need xlink:href and friends. I don't expect namespaced attributes to be at all common, and I'd leave them out of any MicroXML tutorial, but really they aren't that complicated: only 318 words of the 5284 words in the current MicroXML draft, or 6%, are devoted to namespaced attributes, and removing them from MicroLark would save maybe ten lines of code. -- You annoy me, Rattray!
