This is not a proposal but a testing of the water to see if there is a wide
enough need for a 'restricted' (some might call it constricted) version of
the "Namespaces for XML" spec (lets call it RNX for now).

Such a spec might dictate that all namespace declarations be at the root
element (XML fragments are problematic but...).  This restriction has the
side effect of not allowing duplicate prefixes.
