           Summary: Allow Null-Namespace 'href' Attribute
           Product: SVG
           Version: SVG 1.2 Full
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Linking
        AssignedTo: schepers@w3.org
        ReportedBy: schepers@w3.org

In order to ease authoring, and to converge with HTML syntax, we should examine
the possibility of allowing a null-namespace 'href' attribute on <a>, <use>,
<image> and other elements.

Another option is to allow the use of 'xlink:href' without an explicit XLink
namespace declaration.

Note that both approaches do have drawbacks as well as advantages... see
attached links.
