It is always better to devise on a test case.

Example with this new assertion:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2002/06/xhtml2/"
      <title>Some Document</title>
	 <style type="text/css">
	    @namespace dc "http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-namespace/";
	    @namespace foo "http://foo.example.org/";
	    foo|title {text-align: left;}
	    dc|title {text-align: center;}
      <dc:title><cite href="urn:isbn:0060006994">Fix-it Duck</cite></ 

Will it effectively style the two elements?
    - "Fix-it Duck"     centered
    - "Doctor"          left justified

If yes, then the issue will be moved from conflicts to clarity in the  
specification with more prose and give an example.

Thanks for the clarification Boris.
