With the QName->URI issue, it *is* possible that an implementation of 
the "new" spec will get confused by a message still resorting to QNames. 
  Is that something we care about?

Which raises another question - I guess that at some point someone will 
state "right - now we switch to new draft" and we invalidate all the 
questionaires and start again?
