I guess 'breakage' is the wrong word. On our platforms they can't use
xml:base or xml:id. Although this leads to customer complaints it isn't
breakage since they weren't scenarios that used to work that don't

There is always one more bug.

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,
