OK, I have completely separated the use case drawing on automatic namespaces
only to use an http://example.com -based namespace.

http://www.w3.org/community/xmlhypermedia/wiki/Distributed_extensibility_/_automatic_namespaces

I will work on the NeoXML use case example to clarify it a bit more.  If anyone
has any comments or issues, let me know.  Hopefully, it will reflect what this
community thinks.

Also, if anyone has any other use cases, especially which highlight the importance of any one or more
of the vowels or combination thereof, please bring it up on the list and we can potentially capture on the wiki.

Particular outliers right now are @hreflang, @method, @tref.

WRT @rel, I am thinking of that Achilles Heel of XML, the size of the document model post-parsing, as a use case justification for @rel="next".  What does the group think?

Cheers,
Peter
