No problem. Could you either make sure I'm cc'ed on the thread or point me
to the relevant page in the archives? I am not subscribed to xsl-list
since it is too high volume for me (I already get 100+ emails a day...).

Better not litteraly cross post, though, as both lists have "subscriber
only" policies.

Or more, yes. This is not limited to just variations of the same spec,
either. Depending on how the languages are defined, you might want to
address the same element of three different separate languages:

   @namespace texts url(...HTML) url(...HelpML) url(...NewsML);
   texts|p { /* addresses the paragraphs elements of all three
                namespaces easily */ }
