Dear CSS WG,

This is a last call comment from the SVG WG on the CSS Namespaces Module,  
W3C Working Draft 15 February 2008,  
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-css3-namespace-20080215/. Please let us know  
if you have any questions by CC:ing your responses to www-svg@w3.org.

The second and third sentences contradict one another. Suggested
rewrite:

If in the namespace declaration the namespace prefix is omitted, then
the namespace so declared is the default namespace. The default
namespace may apply to names that have no explicit namespace prefix;
modules that employ namespace prefixes must define in which contexts
the default namespace applies.

Regards
/Erik, on behalf of the SVG WG
