Thanks for the pointer / reminder.

The <ext> proposal looks promising to me.

Looking at:

"The <ext> element could potentially be an implicit element, generated 
by the HTML5 parser on encountering a start tag of e.g. "<svg " or 
"<math "."

How about stating that any element with an attribute "xmlns", being set 
to something different from "" or the XHTML namespace name, implies <ext>?

That would make the approach generic.

BR, Julian
