  Hum, I don't think I ever suggested such rules at the XML level.
We have that convention for code, as eric pointed out it is not as clear
for XML (and unfortunately we can't hamonize at this point without
quite a bit of churn - we would have to support the old syntax forever
anyway).

  I don't have a strong opinion on _ vs. camelcase for markup,
I guess the exact same arguments can be raised pros/cons on visibility
and existing use :-\

  Seems Eric is rather adverse to _ which was looking like the winner,
I dislike '-' myself as it is used for comments, and very uncommon
in identifiers in XML (well it's barred from being in an identifier
in most language).

  If Eric really can't stand '_' then maybe the simplest is really
to start standardizing on camelCase,

Daniel
