Huh?  How is this:


massively more verbose than using namespaces?  In fact, it *is*
namespaces - at least in the generic sense even if it lacks the
punctuation to satisfy XML - just without the extra syntax. That means
that it's easier to write the software to parse the file correctly,
and easier to edit the file by hand too.  Sounds like a win all round.
