DT> I propose to specify namespace not only in tags themselves,
DT> but also in CSS, what is more convenient in much cases. E.g.

Styling will be applied after resolving namespace.
XML-file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet    type="text/css"  href="my-style.css"?>
<document>
  <m>nnn</m>
  <s href="k.xml">
    <t>
      <a href="r.xml">Error</a>
    </t>
  </s>
</document>

CSS-file:

@namespace i "http://www.w3.org/2001/xinclude";
s {
  prefix:    i;
  element:   include;
}
t {
  prefix:    i;
  element:   fallback;
}
m {
  prefix:    i;
  color:     red;
}

---

instead of

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<document>
  <i:m>nnn</m>
  <i:include href="k.xml" >
    <i:fallback>
      <a href="r.xml">Error</a>
    </i:fallback>
  </i:include>
</document>

with CSS-file:

@namespace i "http://www.w3.org/2001/xinclude";
i|m {
  color:     red;
}

===

P.S.
But i prefer:

s {
  namespace: http://www.w3.org/2001/xinclude;
  element:   include;
}
t {
  namespace: http://www.w3.org/2001/xinclude;
  element:   fallback;
}
m {
  namespace: http://www.w3.org/2001/xinclude;
  color:     red;
}
