Great, well I won't have an opportunity to discuss until a couple of weeks from now. I thought your proposal was actually your Balisage paper here:


which is why I've referred to it as automatic namespaces.  You do realize you can get a blogger account for free, right? 

I'll add a bit more detail based on these emails to the distributed extensibility use case on the wiki, and I'll add a MicroXML use case as well.

This is fun!

My original proposal is no longer online (the blog hosting was costing
$11/month and I haven't found time to put it up elsewhere), sorry.

I won't have much of a chance to look at stuff now until after Balisage.
