I had an action item[1] to document the current consensus on an
alternate prefixing mechanism to xmlns. I believe that Shane and Mark
agreed that this method seemed to work for all of the cases we had been
discussing, but don't want to speak for them.

The alternate prefix declaration mechanism is described here:

The work plan has been updated to note the completion of this item:

Mark, Shane, can you confirm that you're okay with this approach? All,
if there are any technical issues with the proposed mechanism, please
let the list know. Please be sure to read the transcripts of the telecon
discussions[2] before responding.
