Unfortunately, even if you do the 'better' [] there will no doubt be
implementations that don't get that right and use . This is easy to
see in GeoRSS where there are lots of <geo:lon> or
xmlns:geo=".../wgs84_pos" (instead of ".../wgs84_pos#"). Simple
mistakes, but means you have to build in all kinds of case statements
to handle these slightly incorrect statements, or just ignore them and
have unhappy users.
But that's a digression - it shouldn't modify the spec, but just an
unhappy realism of standards v. requirement in implementation.
