Please could you clarify what you mean by the first part of your
comment 5:

  5. The namespace spec should say how namespace declarations should map
  onto the Infoset. It should distinguish the syntactic form from the
  information content in sentences like the following:

      [Definition: A namespace is declared using a family of
      reserved attributes. Such an attribute's name must either
      be xmlns or have xmlns: as a prefix. These attributes,
      like any other XML attributes, may be provided directly or
      by default. ]

Are you saying that that definition should be expressed in Infoset
terms?  Or that the namespaces spec should describe the effect on the
Infoset of namespace declarations?  Or something else?

Thanks,
  Richard
