If you load the "2.0" XProc library and it adds a new "randomize" 
option to p:namespace-rename, then the randomize option is allowed on
p:namespace-rename steps, either in p:option form or as a syntactic
shortcut.

That declaration defines it. And our spec says that, so by extension
our spec defines it.
