I intentionally said "I don't support" as opposed to "I object" to  
avoid filing a FO and merely to go on record not supporting the spec  
construction Shane said was being used (to pre-empt potential later

I discussed the xmlns:foo issue space with Manu off-list, and I now  
trust that the draft will be further worked on using DOM/Infoset-based  
definitions as opposed to bits-on-the-wire definitions.
