      My concern: it introduces the ability to use XML namespaces for future
      extensions, whilst simultaneously failing to use it for the extensions
      introduced in 2.0. If those extensions were folded into an extension
      module, 2.0 and 1.0 would be both technically and conceptually a lot
      closer. The core of RSS doesn't need much more than 'item', 'channel',
      'link', 'title', 'description'. A simple common core could represent that.
