Ah OK, I see. The symmetry of this is certainly attractive, but I think 
we are talking about different things and shouldn't be led astray by

If you wanted to version a header block would you

(i) just change the localname to something new or
(ii) change the namespace and possibly also the localname ?

My instinct would be for (ii).
