Subject: RE: QNames

BTW: I am suggesting this follow on to Murata-san's original proxy scheme IN
ADDITION to QNames, not as a complete replacement. In that spirit, it give
people the option of avoiding using QNames if they want. I believe that
having that extra option will make some people VERY happy. -Mike

I think Makoto's proxy idea is very appealing. Rather than introducing a new
concept, though, couldn't we just use the prefix as the proxy name and then
just overload the ns attribute? Consider:

<grammar xmlns:e="http://www.example.com/e" proxy="yes">
<element name="addressBook" ns="e">
    <element name="card" ns="e">
      <element name="name" ns="e">
      <element name="email" ns="e" >

It's less verbose. It overloads (so to speak) the ns attribute so that it
could contain a namespace URI or prefix as a proxy name. proxy is just a
flag...perhaps unnecessary.

Casting about as usual,
