Liam, David(s),

I was hoping for some comments on this idea, which seems especially topical given the preference for the MicroXML CG to drop all colon-names.  

In particular, the concept of a 'virtual' link on say the document node might be a data model issue.  Is this conceivable?  My perspective is you can pretty much declare the semantics you want when you define a media type.  But if it is theoretically incompatible with the data model, maybe that presents a problem :-).

In short, for others who might not want to read Liam's full paper, by combining a new XML media type with generic, XML web-style links + automatic namespaces, one can get rid of colon names without getting rid of the benefits of namespaces.

Subject: use cases

Hi Folks,

I've added more beef to the use cases for automatic namespaces and "NeoXML".

Please have a look and let me know if there are details that could be improved.  I seem to be working in a layered fashion, but we can always go back and amplify something if it does not support the layer above.  I hope this will help build the case for each and every vowel proposed.

So first read automatic namespaces, then read NeoXML:
