“How often do you
really click to cut and paste just an element name?”
Quite a lot. Usually when searching. It sets
the term in the search box.
1 click to select a word is best practice in Notepad++ and with XML language
selected, to highlight the element name and close for fast scanning of the tree
in the text.

Again I understand aesthetic differences, but I don't
get this "clickable' one. How often do you really click to cut and paste
just an element name? And if you do, qnames will already make one click
impossible. I've written a ton of XSLT with a good number of editors, and it
never even occurred to me to give this a thought. I've also never, ever heard
that complaint made about XSLT on all the forums I've been.
The main problem I encounter with hyphens is in data
binding to programming languages, but it boggles my mind to think that anyone
would place the convenience of a programmer over the readability of the data.
Hyphens and underscores are most easier for a non-programmer to read, and
hyphens are easier for a non-programmer to type, so for me, it's an
easy win, and I in all my time programming I've never, for example, mistaken a
hyphen that's part of a name for a minus sign.

thing that cannot be cut and paste starting with 1 double click in an editor is
no fun for me..
from a clicking point of view

dont particularly like hyphen-case because I can't tell it apart from
