That's not an acceptable political answer given both that it leaves that
decision at the W3C and that the W3C is apparently shutting this
activity down completely on 31 December.  Perhaps the W3C should leave
such claims to individual MIME Content Type registrations, which will
continue beyond that date and which have no such political restrictions.

The technical value of QNames for this application has received a pretty
thorough assault on xml-dev, a small part of which has appeared here. I
strongly recommend that readers of this list visit the xml-dev archives
for the last 24 hours:
