I've been looking at the namespace spec and have come to beleive that it 
cannot be wholly useful until mean for element inheritance is developed. 
 If that was the case, then it should be possible to create a new element 
that inherits the syntax AND the use of elements from other namespaces.

In addition, I think the namespace issue has problems when an application 
attempts to pull attributes out from their original context, a particular 
element in another namepsace, and use them somewhere else.

I will repost my letter I wrote to the authors of the namespace spec to the 
xml-dev listserv.
