I wouldn't care about having to add the XLink attributes either (I tend 
to do a lot of copy/pasting if I have to use the same tags/attributes 
over and over again); I'm referring to those out there who don't 
understand why HTML is even being converted to XHTML (and there were a 
lot of them in the HTML class I just took) and would definitely balk at 
having to write xlink:type="simple" every time they would have to create 
a link.  That's not even mentioning the number of such websites that 
claim to be XHTML but lack both the XML prolog and the xmlns attribute.  
The former there is a good reason for forgetting, but why forget the latter?

It seems to me there's currently an understanding issue when it comes to 
XML Namespaces.
