By XIncluding the declarations :-)

Let's say I send 10,000 headlines, all XIncluding the 
same set of declarations.  That allows me to transport 
the declarations just once, rather than 10,000 times.

Oh. Well, then you'll have to transmit the full URIs somehow.
I got the impression that the xmlns declarations introduced
a lot of redundancy. But if the taxonomies are completely
unconstrained, then I don't see how you'll do substantially
better than xmlns declarations.
