Suppose I have a requirement that my XML content cannot be changed in any
way. For example, the content is on a CD, yet I still wish to be able to
associate namespaces with the GIs on that CD. 

So how do I prepend the prefixes to content found on a read-only medium?

I suppose I could copy the data off the CD and validate the copy, but
wouldn't that get old pretty fast?
