Hi,
This is a QA Review comment for "CSS Module: Namespaces"

About http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-css3-namespace-20060828/#scope

The specifications says

	[[[
	The namespace prefix is declared only within the 
	style sheet in which its @namespace rule appears, 
	and not any style sheets imported by that style sheet, 
	style sheets that import that style sheet, or any 
	other style sheets applying to the document.
	]]]

Then let's take this example.

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2002/06/xhtml2/"
      xmlns:dc="http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-namespace/"
      xml:lang="en">
   <head>
     <title>Some Document</title>
	 <style type="text/css">
	    @import url(foo.css);
	    @namespace dc "http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-namespace/";
	    dc|title {text-align: center;}
		dc\:title {text-align: right;}
	  </style>
   </head>
   <body>
     <dc:title><cite href="urn:isbn:0060006994">Fix-it Duck</cite></dc:title>
   </body>
 </html>

with foo.css containing

	@namespace dc "http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-namespace/";
	dc|title {text-align: left;}

Which rules apply? From the specification as it is defined, it is not sure.
