+NAME Ronnie Thebonnie +CONTACT email@example.com +CATEGORY (select one or more from below) file format +SCOPE (select one or more from below) general +USE CASE all files where name spaces are used +DESCRIPTION Better use of name spaces. Going over the elements in the OpenDocument-v1.2-part1-cd04.pdf. It was obvious a lot of elements have a name space in front of them. This seems rather like a waste of space considering the tricks xml can do. Why not have a name space element that can encapsulate other pieces of content that no longer need the name space prefix for each element. This has some advantages, smaller files is a nice one. When copy and pasting svg, it is more efficient because it's almost pure svg. e.g. <namespace: svg> //all sorts of svg </namespace: svg> <namespace: text> .... <bibiography-configuration>... .... </namespace: text> Proposal: easier namespace handling by using an element that encapsulates other elements. To tell the application it's all in that namespace. If different name spaces have the same element, then the fall-back would be to put the name space anyway. This can enable significant savings in large documents.
