You have got to be kidding me. I can't think of anyone who is totally 
happy with namespaces in XML. I can't even think of anybody who is happy 
with. The best I think anyone claims is tolerance. Even full-time XML 
geeks like me have a real distaste for namespaces, and admit the design 
is seriously flawed.

Seriously, can anyone here stand up and say, "I really like namespaces 
in XML."? If so, can you please explain why?
