    Maya exporter - xmlns

    Hello,

    Is there a good reason why the Maya exporter (September 4th version) outputs a root COLLADA element with a xmlns attribute set to "http://tempuri.org/COLLADASchema.xsd"? First off, tempuri.org is not particularly useful. Second, the presence of the xml namespace makes it more painful to use XPath on the resulting xml.

    Anyway, personally I commented out the code related to that attribute, but I'd like to know the reasoning behind this.

    It's a bug in the exporter that was corrected before SIGGRAPH and COLLADA 1.0 release.

    The domain "tempuri.org" is an artifact of the Microsoft Dev. Environment 2003 toolset. During schema creation the tools default to that fictitious domain.
