Subject Re: Flex and names spaces in MXML
Date Sat, 17 Mar 2012 22:28:27 GMT
I think I still have a pitchfork in my closet from that one.

Personally, I think that we should keep the existing name spaces..  And for
those who don't want to use particular elements from those namespaces (for
example, with very few exceptions, my mobile flex apps don't use, nor
declare the mx namespace), don't have to.

Right now, we have mx (going away, eventually), fx (script tags) and s
(spark).  I don't even think adding an "a" namespace to denote new
components from Apache really makes sense at this point.

The reason why mx -> s was important was that the architectural really
changed, plus the planned obsolescence of the old components.  I don't
think there is much on our plate right now that constitutes a similar need
(aside some of the architectural changes that Alex and Mike have been
teasing us with).
