I have just a few minor comments about [1].

- There is a section entitled "Conformance" [2] that only
  addresses the conformance of documents (with respect to the
  What about the conformance of agents? There is at least one statement
  related to conformance by agents (from Section 2: "software which
  supports this namespace proposal must recognize and act on these 
  declarations and prefixes"). Should mention of this type of
  appear in section 6?

- Section 4 says that a prefix must be declared before it is used. What
  happens if it isn't? 

- In the first example of section 5.1, the following qualified markup

      <html:a href='http://.......'>here.</html:a>

   I think the "href" should be qualified (since the example says
   here is explicitly in the HTML namespace"). 

- [NIT] In the fourth example of section 5.2 (<Beers>), you might
        use <TH> instead of <TD> for the first row of headers. The WAI
        will appreciate this.

- In section 5.3, the first sentence ends with one too many colons after
  the word "which".

My attention waned when I hit the Appendices, but I'll have a look
