That approach is perfectly valid with MicroXML (as described in my draft).
The only requirements in Section 4.2 (Attributes in Namespaces) have to
do with not misusing the xml: prefix and its associated namespace.
Everything else is SHOULD or MAY.

[R]eversing the apostolic precept to be all things to all men, I usually [before
Darwin] defended the tenability of the received doctrines, when I had to do
with the [evolution]ists; and stood up for the possibility of [evolution] among
the orthodox --thereby, no doubt, increasing an already current, but quite
undeserved, reputation for needless combativeness.  --T. H. Huxley
