All of the namespace proposals have to solve two problems:

 1. linking to the schema or whatever defines the namespace, and
 2. signalling what namespace an element type is in (the colon stuff).

For #1, we've had proposals for using elements and PI's and weird new
marked section-like syntax.  Despite the fact that the problem has
"link" in its name.  This could obviously done with xml-link given
a reserved role like 
<x XML-link="extended" role="xml-namespace" href=".." short-prefix=".."/>

Given that it can be, it should be.  Why not? -Tim
