CSS Module: Namespaces
W3C Working Draft 28 August 2006
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-css3-namespace-20060828/

Abstract

  This CSS module defines the syntax for using namespaces in CSS. It
  introduces the @namespace rule for declaring the default namespace and
  binding namespaces to namespace prefixes, and it defines a syntax that
  other specifications can adopt for using those prefixes in
  namespace-qualified names.

I request that this be discussed at the next XML CG call and a reviewer 
assigned (not myself, since I am an ex-editor).

In particular I call your attention to

   The terminology used in this specification is that of [XML-NAMES11].
   Do we really need this sentence?

and suggest that the XML CG might like to convey the desirability of
using the XML definitions of terms in this area as opposed to, say some
terms the CSS WG makes up. Thus, Namespaces in XML 1.1 should be a
normative reference.

A detailed review of thus useful addition to CSS (namespace aware
selectors, namespace aware use of attribute values, etc) is warranted
IMO.
