As I understand it, there is nothing PREVENTING you from doing this. In
fact, RDF does in fact (I think) use namespaces this way. I think the
problem came from the fact that the namespace facility does not INHERENTLY
make any connection between content and schema. A namespace attribute could
point off into the Delta quadrant, as long as it points to a unique planet
within the delta quadrant.
