Description Anne 2012-03-23 08:34:21 UTC

AKA: allow people to shoot themselves in the foot? And if so, how exactly?
Comment 1 Anne 2012-04-06 08:04:54 UTC
The Gecko bug that originally inspired the xmlns check is https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=315805

xmlns check removed in: https://bitbucket.org/ms2ger/dom-core/changeset/be5e0ad2b1f0

Next: namespace algorithms.
Comment 2 Anne 2012-04-06 08:45:48 UTC
Should we remove xmlns and xml attribute name checks from setAttributeNS()? Given that setAttribute() does not care, they are pointless.
Comment 3 Anne 2012-04-06 09:11:01 UTC

Comment 4 Anne 2012-04-06 09:14:33 UTC
Comment 2 is now bug 16648.
