Why not to drop "android:" prefix from xmls?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

In my recent small project I count 4000 occurances of “android:” prefix in the xml files describing layout.

Of course, size does not metter – its still small – but why is it necessary to keep it at all?

Is there any namespace collision or why i have to add android: before every property I add?

Where to complain/propose update on that?

How to solve:
