Summary: define XML namespace for output of web API
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.17-svn
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: API

It would be useful to define an XML namespace for any XML-Formatted output of
the web API. This would allow us to embed elements from that output in other
XML documents easily. My own use case is embedding <rc> tags in XMPP stanzas.

I would suggest to use the URI for the
namespace. In practice, this would mean that the top level <api> tag returned
by the API would become:

<api xmlns="";>

This should have no impact whatsoever on backward compatibility, except perhaps
for clients processing the XML using naive regular expressions. I believe it
would be ok to break those, since they rely on things that are never guaranteed
in XML.
