I think they've already spoken to that issue:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2012May/0027.html

So I'm not optimistic either, but it would be ideal to lay out
a good proposed spec and they can decide on the merits anyway.

-------------------

Let's start here.   I assert it is absolutely NOT ideal to put effort into something that has no chance of success.  But I suppose 
it depends on what your goals are.  Adoption of the concept in some form or putting something into the xml: namespace or nothing.
The XML WG had Closed this request.  Other previous indications are that they will not accept similar requests.
I personally am not willing to invest time fighting this windmill.

If you are happy to work on a proposal that does *not* require the XML WG to add more names to the reserved xml: namespace then  I am willing to spend some effort to help that along.
If you are not, then I am not going to find the time and willpower in me to do so.  Others might.

I suggest a good proposed spec should be outside the xml namespace.
If we can get good adoption of *that* then it might conceivably someday be incorporated into xml:  ... maybe.  Although even then unlikely.   

If that is unacceptable, there is not much more help I can give.  You are welcome to work on it and gain others help though.
I dont want to pretend I am actually in charge of anything except my own time.
