This is a formal response from the XML Core WG to your comments on the
Namespaces in XML 1.1 last call working draft.

If we haven't heard from you by the end of Monday December 9th, we
will assume for the purposes of our planned CR request that you have
no objection to our resolution.

Summary: rejected

We decided against merging the specs at this time since it would greatly
complicate and delay the publication process.  We agree that a merge
would be a good thing in principle.

Summary: rejected

Since the use of relative IRI references as namespace names is
deprecated, we believe it is unnecessary (and potentially confusing)
to discuss this.
