[closed] Re: put optional step in different namespace

/ James Fuller <james.fuller.2007@gmail.com> was heard to say:
| if we assume that the standard library, as defined with a
| p:pipeline-library element is defined with a default namespace
| attribute e.g.
| namespace="http://www.w3.org/ns/xproc"
| In the case for optional steps, is there not value in placing these in
| a separate  pipeline-library definition with a different namespace
| from the outset?
| namespace="http://www.w3.org/ns/xproc-opt"

The WG considered this and decided that there was not. There are already
too many namespaces :-)

From the point of view of the user, I don't think the fact that a step
is either required or optional is interesting.
