James points out [1] that the Namespaces REC points [2] to the Letter
production to get its Names started, and that this will lead to a
disconnect if 5e goes ahead.

I suggest we consider as a matter of urgency issuing an erratum
against Namespaces allowing Namespace implementations to track XML by
using 5e's definition of NameStartChar, at the same time that we
publish XML 5e.
