I would say it's not merely a style guide matter to specify that SAML 
elements must be qualified as being in the SAML namespace.  Is that what 
you mean?

I would agree that we *shouldn't* mandate namespace prefixes, since it's 
legitimate according to the XML Namespaces spec to default instead of 
prefixing.  But requiring qualified markup seems fair -- we are defining 
the one true set of SAML namespaces, and if you don't use it in your 
message, you're arguably not using SAML.  Maybe it should just go in the 
conformance section?
