Ok, I switched it back. One (minor) technical reason was to avoid the
need for an unignored-namespaces attribute. But I think we can just
live without that.

What I mean is, if you specify "http://example.com/foo" as an ignored
namespace at the p:pipeline-library level, then it *must* be an
ignored namespace in all the pipelines within that library. There's no
way to declare it "unignored" for one of the pipelines.
