Good day,

I propose to specify namespace not only in tags themselves,
but also in CSS, what is more convenient in much cases. E.g.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet    type="text/css"  href="my-style.css"?>
<document>
  <m>nnn</m>
  <s href="k.xml">
    <t>
      <a href="r.xml">Error</a>
    </t>
  </s>
</document>

with the following content of file 'my-style.css':

s {
  namespace: xinclude;
  element:   include;
}
t {
  namespace: xinclude;
  element:   fallback;
}


instead of

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<document xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/xinclude">
  <m>nnn</m>
  <i:include href="k.xml" >
    <i:fallback>
      <a href="r.xml">Error</a>
    </i:fallback>
  </i:include>
</document>

P.S.
We specify much other CSS-properties inside tag
(e.g. inside open tag in HTML).
And we must look at namespace prefix in tag
in the same way.
