I will investigate this.  Note that with our DTD architecture there is 
no way to *change* prefixes midstream - if you say that a given 
namespaces uses prefix "foo" it has to use "foo" everywhere.  However, 
you should be able to put an xmlns declaration on ANY element.  XHTML 
Modularization pushes all defined namespaces onto the attribute 
collection of all elements.  Or rather, it is supposed to.  Thanks for 
the heads up on this.
