Thank you for your input. The namespace is now back in the spec.
Unless Anne can make a convincing case here for taking it out again, I
think this matter should now be closed.

If anyone else has any arguments for or against a namespace, please
send them in regardless.

We will likely produce a RelaxNG  schema down the track, but it is not
a priority right now. I'll ask Art to please record the creation as
some sort of schema as an issue or action in the tracker so it's not
forgotten about.

Kind regards,
