RE:  Attributes with default namespaces? XSLT Rec  ques

Nice! Thank you!

It isn't very explicit about why the default namespace does not apply to
attributes, though. And indeed REC-xml-names itself neither.

Is there anyone on this list who happens to know what the real reasons where
why that rule was added to that recommendation? Not that I object, it saves
typing a lot of prefixes on occasion. I am just being curious. :-)

Kind regards,
