Subject: Re: [ubl] RE: [ubl-dev] Simpler-Than-UBL Design Rules

Good morning, Steve,

I'm afraid that while on vacation I've missed a couple of your notes 
and not had the time to respond with details, but I do have a quick comment.

I'm worried that this is "breaking" UBL ... multiple namespaces are a 
part of UBL whether we like it or not, and creating a "one-namespace" 
or "no-namespace" version of the instance *isn't* UBL nor should it ever be.

I'm not sure how to weigh "necessary".  If you are doing this just to 
accommodate some tools, regardless of how easy that makes it, I don't 
believe that is justification for changing the definition of UBL.
