(Minor point: it is customary to use a namespace qualified name and
define the namespace tags near the beginning of the doc.
Specifications frequently reference several XML schemas and they
contain the same element names. In particular, common words like
Request and Response are likely to appear in many schemas.)
Not all formats have the concept of namespaces (e.g. JSON), so in the
interest of being neutral in terms of representation, I felt I
use namespaces here. I used wording like "XACML request" to address
this issue. Does that sound reasonable?
I was thinking primarily of the examples here. <Request> is potentially
ambiguous. <xs:request> with a suitable definition of xs, is not.
