In fact I have done business both with Fort Meade and the OSD and I 
understand something of those issues.  If you send me XML to process, 
and you put that XML in a namespace, and you give the namespace a name 
that makes it impossible for me to dereference it to help figure out 
your data, I'm going to be annoyed.  Even if it only says something like 
"The contents of elements in this namespace are encrypted and must be 
maintained in canonical form" or "For more information about this data 
call (703) 482-0623 and ask for Ernie" that is much better than nothing. 
  We're trying to write rules for data that's out there on the Web. -Tim
