I agree with Geoff.

mod_dav certainly treats the namespace/name thing as a tuple, rather than a
concatenation. In other words, ns="DAV:" name="foo" is different from
ns="DAV:f" name="oo".

It seems that I recall one conversation that said that most clients and
servers treated it that way.

Cheers,
