In NS 1.0, NCName is defined to start with NCNameStartChar
which is defined in NS 1.0 at
http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-names/#NT-NCNameStartChar
to be 	Letter | '_'
where Letter is defined in XML 1.0, and Letter in XML 1.0 5th Ed
does not include all the characters allowed as the initial character
of a Name in XML 1.0 5th Ed.

We could redefine NS 1.0 NCName as Name (from XML) without colon
and leave the now orphaned NCNameChar and NCNameStartChar
productions in case other specs reference them--we may need
to update them appropriately to reflect XML 1.0 5th Ed changes.

ACTION to Henry and Richard:  Make a specific proposal for
changing the NS 1.0 spec to address this NCNameStartChar problem.

We need to be sure we check back with James on our suggested
resolution.

We expect it to be published today or tomorrow.
