I notice you have not backed out your change, so what is the net
result of all of this?

I am assuming you committed your patch because you did not see a
problem. Is it just that expat does not validate the namespace but
this could be a problem with some other XML parser?

Given that, what does it mean for your change, and possibly Paul's
branch? Should you go back to using the dash?
