Actually, I did hear Eliot say this, but I doubt he modified the 
XSLT *processor*.  I assumed he meant he modified the stylesheets.

Supporting namespaces is work for vendors, but it's work that
vendors are going to have to do to be up to date and to support
schemas and modern uses of XML.  So what I meant to say is that
adding namespaces to DITA shouldn't make it any harder for a vendor
to support DITA than to support any other modern-day XML application.
