A new issue was created at the last TAG call:  what is the interpretation of
an XML document with more than one namespace.

This was raised in the light of lack of consensus result from the workshop,
and specifically prompted by a question, occurring as XEncryption made its
way to Candidate Recommendation status in W3C, about the relationship of
XEncryption to other specs, and TAG discussion of XSLT "templates" as an
apparent corner case in XML processing.  I started a document describing the
problem, and the only solution direction I could see myself,  as an action
item from that TAG meeting, to open discussion on a new issue
mixedNamespaceMeaning-13.

The document in very draft form and woefully bereft of links is

http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/XML.html

I hope this explains the issue.  The position on solutions is all my own
personal opinion.
