It depends on the Web community you are talking to and then the type
of applications and tools. In the paradigm of Web authors and Web
designers, the Web community has a better understanding of class
names because they are used to it.
In some other Web communities, it will be the opposite, people will
have a better grip on XML namespaces, and schemas.
So it's really a question of community of practices. The more
important is to find bridges when it's possible. The rest turns
always in religious debates, which are pointless.
