What are XML's namespaces?

I didn't notice any mention in the April Draft of XML having one or
more namespaces.  By that I mean if element names and attribute
names share the same namespace then I can't have an element with
the same name as an attribute.  I suspect that the answer is
"just like SGML," but I'm deathly ignorant of SGML, so I need
a layman's explanation or a narrowly focused pointer into a
document about SGML that I can borrow or find on the Web.

Thanks for starting to educate me.
