Hi Liam,

Actually, if you did this:

<foo rel="ns" href="http://example.com/mynsresource" type="application/namespaces+xml">

and the /mynsresource was like this:



then you would never have to use the prefixed form in the instance document, maybe, because you'd
recursively mapped the prefixed form to the  unprefixed form, although you could still use them if you really wanted because it is defined by fiat in the xml spec.

What do you think?

Subject: automatic namespaces use case


I've updated the wiki with a use case for automatic namespaces.

Please have a look and respond to this thread.  I'll updated it as required.
