   Ms. Van Kesteren et al.
   I believe that there are two distinct projects:
   1) Develop a means to have HTML5 and XML interact, which is to be suited for the users of HTML5.
   2) Develop a means to have XHTML5 and XML interact, which is to be suited for the users of XML including validation of both the XHTML5 content and the XML content.
   There probably will be separate solutions to these two problems. Only in the second case, XHTML5 and XML, is it necessary for the web page to be well formed and valid. Another difference is that the improvements in XSDL1.1 can and should be used to provide or extend a schema that is part of the means to implement the second case. The use of Curies and/or Prefixes would be useful in the second case. Curies and Prefixes are construct to increase the readability of RDFa; however, they can be of use for other modalities, such as forms. If one has an element composed of one or more complexTypes, the capacity to read and write the components of the complexTypes will be simplified by the ability to create a relatively short string that is a concatenation of the prefix of the Curie and the part of the path that was not contained within the Curie. This construct can be smaller and easier to read instead of the full path.  If the Curie specifies the path to the complexType, the rest of the string can be the name of an element or attribute that was based on a simpleType.

   FWIW:
   
      http://quuz.org/xml5/play
      http://code.google.com/p/xml5/
   
   Apart from a couple of details (e.g. determining the character encoding) it is pretty much done. I have not worked on it since 2007 though. There was not sufficient interest back then.
