I'm sorry, Dare, did you hit 'send' too soon, or are you saying that
you think the fact that you have to declare them is what's going to
cause applications to break? If so, (1) I don't see how and (2) it's
no different than xml:lang or xml:space, do you content that they
cause breakage too for the same reason?

                                        Be seeing you,
