> Dear HTML WG,
>
> The TAG has reviewed the proposal in http://intertwingly.net/blog/ 
> 2007/08/02/HTML5-and-Distributed-Extensibility.  In short, we  
> believe it is a very interesting start of a proposal for stronger  
> support for distributed extensibility on the web in the HTML  
> language.  We hope that the Working Group will give it and it's  
> natural subsequent refinements or similar alternatives very serious  
> consideration.
>
> The core design principles that are embodied in it and that we  
> support are:
> 1. Allowing distributed extensibility using xml namespace like syntax.
> 2. Robustness in handling unknown markup.
> 3. Re-use of existing syntax and idioms for extensibility
> 4. A balance between simplicity of authoring and richness of  
> functionality.
>
> On the important issue of default prefixes, many TAG members have  
> expressed concern about various usages of some attributes and  
> attribute values, but we have no opinion to offer at this time.
>
> Cheers,
> Dave
