it's good to see some progress on this.

Some nitpicks:

• It looks as if at times some constraints from the XML specification  
are recommended to be copied over (e.g. "If there are attribute tokens  
with the same name it is a parse error"). As usual, I think it is  
better to do this by reference.

• "it is possible to do prefixing of attributes as well": no, you just  
can't. Attributes aren't in any namespace, they can't have a prefixes.

• Are the ext/fallback combo a good solution? Are there examples of a  
language in which fallback syntax (as opposed to some hacks) is  
actually used? The example that is given could equally be written with  
an svg:script or svg:style that turns the display on for <svg> and  
removes the replacement image from the document (it's already like  
what is done in the <fallback> there). I'd personally like to see more  
examples of this to justify the cost of adding a new element.
