They aren't used as XML namespaces as such, but they are used as 
absolute URIs within the spec and, rightly or wrongly, we use a 
notation of absolute:relative (just like prefix:localname) when 
referring to properties. I think we need something like this otherwise 
the spec will just be full of long URIs that will reduce readability.
