You're proposal, as I understood it, was that the XHTML serialization
of HTML5 would allow arbitrary namespaces and prefixes, like XML,
while the non-XML serialization would not. If I've understood you
incorrectly, please let me know. If not, I encourage you to shop that
idea around the HTML community. I think you'll find it very difficult
to garner any support at all. But do let me know.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
