If we want to make any progress I think we need first to agree on a few things.
If we cant agree on those I think no progress will be made.

I argue that pragmatically this is unimportant.
I assert:
This working group is not going to be able to add anything to the xml: namespace.
In order to do that we would need to be part of the XML working group.  The XML spec clearly states that xml* attributes, elements, and anything in the xml: namespace are their domain.  Being part of W3C I dont think we can pull that rug from them.

If we can't agree on this we can take it "upstairs" for verification ... but I am fairly confident of this fact.

if we can agree then lets proceed with the assumption that this WG will propose a specification that does not include 
changing the XML specification, lets proceed on that.
If we can agree, but we dont like it then the next step is to request to be members of the XML WG and take the issue up with them.
