Correct.  My proposal is only a way to describe the proposed HTML 5
behaviour with the default namespace changing based on a hard-coded
list of elements in the browser, and also to allow users to add to
that list.

If you use Scent elements (say) and the Web browser doesn't
have the necessary smarts (and/or the necessary hardware) to
generate smells, that's a separate problem to the ability
to recognise that the "smell" element belongs to a specific
namespace other than a more recent version of HTML than the
browser author knew about.
