I believe the claim was made that namespace and xml:base declarations 
were not  comparable to encoding declarations -- that there is something 
fundamentally different about how they effect the interpretation of the 
content.  My claim was that there was not.  That the effect of either on 
the interpretation of scoped content was similar.  The effect on the 
URIs or QNames found in the content was one of interpretation by the 
application which might be applied according to some known schema and 
processing or might be ignored.
