That is, indeed, one possibility.

My larger point is that there is a spectrum between the full-on bells and
whistles approach to XML namespaces that was explored and rejected a half a
decade ago and a no-namespaces, no-how, under no circumstances approach to
namespaces that was present in HTML5 a mere few months ago.  And exploring
the solution space for the potential of small movements along that spectrum
should not require "radical new evidence".
