| I think we need to provide the in-scope namespaces along with any

| properly.  I would be very unfortunate if this didn't work:
|
| <p:option name="initial-mode" value="my:start" xmlns:my="..."/>
|
| That is easy for implementors to do but we need to say that parameter
| and option values have their in-scope namespaces from the p:parameter
| or p:option element available to the component or processor, respectively.

Huh? The scoping of namespaces says that the above xmlns:my declaration
applies to the p:option. Why on earth do we have to say anything
special? They're QNames resolved against the in-scope namespaces.

                                        Be seeing you,
