[css3-namespaces] upcoming last call for the CSS3 Namespaces Module

The CSS WG decided that the CSS3 Namespaces Module is ready for last 
call. The publication will probably happen within a week.

We're not sure which WGs should review it. It's a pretty old draft. We 
believe it is already widely implemented (despite that fact that it is 
a draft, but let's not be picky...).

XML Core, maybe?

Anyway, if your WG wants to review it, let me know how much time you 
need. It's a very small draft. By default, we will set the deadline for 
comments to three weeks after publication.

Some information about the WD:

    Title: CSS Namespaces Module

    Current URL: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-namespace/
    Latest version: http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-namespace/
    Editors: Elika J. Etemad, Anne van Kesteren

    Abstract:

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

The module is required to make Selectors usuable in CSS. Selectors can 
select elements by their namespaces, but doesn't define how namespaces 
are declared. In CSS, those declarations will be done with the syntax 
of this module, but other systems (e.g., XBL2) use their own syntax to 
declare namespaces for use with Selectors.
