Henrik, I had always been thinking of namespaces as a way to avoid
XML-tagname clashes, no more. You are suggesting that XMLP also uses
namespaces to "name" ("type"?)  modules, which I would have done instead
through an additional attribute. From your knowledge, it this particular use
of namespaces suggested by the XML Namespace spec? is it common practice?

Jean-Jacques.
