Hello www-style,

Since CSS 2.1 is shaping up as a CSS2 replacement and since CSS3 in
its entirety might take some time to become a reality; and since there
is already at least one implementation of @namespace (Mozilla) it
occurs to me that witjh only one or two more implementations it would
be possible to pass Candidate recommendation without significant
delay, and the resulting specification would be much more suitable for
styling multi-namespace XML documents.

The actual functionality and specification of @namespace has been
static for *three years*. Its time to move it forward.

SVG 1.2 would also likely refer to @namespace, since multi-namespace
usage is also an area of increasing concern among SVG implementors.

Who among the (X(HTML)) implementor community

a) has already implemented it
b) would add it in the next three months if that meant that CSS2.1
could have this functionality?
