Subject: Re: QNames

/ "James Clark" <jjc@jclark.com> was heard to say:
| The assumption underlying the datatypeNamespace idea is that mixing datatype
| namespaces will be relatively unusual.  I'm guessing that most of the time
| people will use XML Schema Part 2 by itself, or in the long term some other
| simpler datatype system by itself.
| I would agree that if people have to mix datatype namespaces often, QNames
| work better.

I understand (and accept the assumption). I also assume that if someone
is mixing two datatypeNamespaces, it's probably unlikely that the two
namespaces overlap.

On balance, I guess I'm convinced. Allowing users with no interest in 
namespaces to completely avoid QNames is a nice feature.

Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com> | Doubt is to certainty as neurosis is to
http://nwalsh.com/            | psychosis. The neurotic is in doubt and
                              | has fears about persons and things; the
                              | psychotic has convictions and makes
                              | claims about them. In short, the
                              | neurotic has problems, the psychotic
                              | has solutions.--Thomas Szasz
