How can a namespace enable us to discover a record of authority by
which we may determine which variant or subset of the definition
is in effect for some time slice of a process?
It is important because we will not have a single definition for
some processes which may think to name within a single standard.
For example, the timing models or concepts of SMIL and VRML may
not be compatible although they do overlap considerably. We
require a means to diffentiate the non-compatible models.
