I don't know what you mean by "xmlns:" here. If you mean in the same way that
HTML5 currently "uses" xmlns, namely as a set of optional attributes with fixed

I'm not aware of any proposal that does the above that I consider simple enough
for broad Web deployment, but that doesn't mean one doesn't exist. I do not

truly am open to other ideas, I just think that, as described in the original
bug description and in comment 44, the current mechanism is too complicated.
