/ ht@inf.ed.ac.uk (Henry S. Thompson) was heard to say:
| Presumably you meant p:ignored-prefixes="exc". . .
| Three further clarifications:
|  1) Are we calling it ignored-prefixes, or extension-prefixes?

We're currently calling it ignored-prefixes, I think, though now that
we have p:doc, I think I'd be in favor of changing its name.

|  2) Can we just follow XSLT's lead and only allow it on p:pipeline and
|     p:pipeline-library?, (oh yes, and it doesn't need to be a qname in
|     that case anymore, right?)

XSLT allows it anywhere, without a prefix on a name in the XSLT namespace
and with one on other elements.

I was going for simplicity and just always putting it in a namespace.

|  3) p:doc is allowed almost anywhere except inside p:inline, right?

Basically. I haven't tried to write that bit yet.

                                        Be seeing you,
