| Yeah, I guessed something like that, but since

You can be opposed to it until the cows come home, implementors will
do what their customers request.

|  b) it makes no sense on atomic steps

That's not quite true. The following is an error:

    <p:input .../>
    <db:para>This is documentation</db:para>

The following is not:

  <p:xslt p:ignore-prefixes="db">
    <p:input .../>
    <db:para>This is documentation</db:para>

| I think the confusion it will engender is much greater than any
